Re: Laguna 2 splash sheild removeal

It sounds like the captive nut has broken off and is spinning round.I'm sure someone will come along in a moment and say differently,but the only real option is to cut the bolts with a grinder or similar and then when you replace the undertray find some self taping screws and large washers,drill a couple of holes in the tray and through the cross member (obviously making sure that you don't drill through any wires/pipes etc!) and screw the self tappers into them to hold the tray up.
