Re: Espace Door Stay bolt lost inside.
Well done that man. Afraid the only solution to this [problem in general is prevention. Perhaps use a tap instead of the bolt to start with? I had heard of this problem shortly after I got my 98RXE in 2005. Over some months I went over as many bolts as I could find all over the car, extracted them one by one, gently reamed the captive nut with an appropriate tap and used copper grease on the bolt going back. BTW If you have seat rails START NOW, because the torx heads of their screws can't take the strain if they they get rightly rusted in. best luck good buddy
