Re: Plastic screw stuck in roof bar mounts
managed to remove about 2/3rds of the plastic screw by carefully drilling into the plastic screw and then using small screw drivers to remove the bits. However the bolt would still not sit fully into its hole. I was left with about 5mm so i used a few washers to space the gap and this seemed to work i have had the bars on the car for the last few weeks and have checked all the bolts on a regular basis and they are going nowhere. So i think i have solved my problem. I hope this helps other viewers to this forum if like me they have trouble with the dreaded plastic screw. Now on the look out for a suitable 2nd hand roof box.
