Hello every one i have gone to change the blow off valve today and put the GFB T9454 VTA in my mk3 focus st3 and noticed that some one has already changed it and rounded the bolt off so the bolt just spins inside. Is there any easy way to get this fixed.

Thanks sam

If you are able to get at it with a cutting tool, make a line across the head and use a flat head screwdriver to undo it.

Time consuming but cheap and easy.

If it's the threaded hole into the turbo then the easy & quick answer is that it is neither quick nor easy to fix. It might be able to be tapped a bit larger if there is enough material around to accommodate this without compromising the turbo housing. Otherwise it might be possible to insert a helicoil but that also means tapping it out to a larger size as well but not as big. Lastly it's a new turbo................................

Hence cost wise - expensive......quite expensive.............very expensive ........... for the sake of a cross threaded bolt!
