    Default My Car was in Garage for Timing Belt and Water Pump Change

    He was working on it for 1 hour but one of the bolts has been butchered from previous owner.

    He said he needs a replacement Aluminium cover so he can get it off via some brute force.

    Anybody know or have the part I require or pointers to purchasing one?

    Ali cover.... must mean the lower timing belt cover then I guess... (guessing yours is a CDTI150 - no car info above?)

    Can he not use something like irwin bolt reomvers to remove the bolt rather than break the cover?

    Can you confirm what cover he means?

    Ok - cool..

    So I would be using Irwin bolt removers on the rounded bolt and not breaking the cover. They are not cheap!

    Covers?

    Erm - no - but use vectra-c-spares on ebay and I bet he will have a good second hand one.

    Re the bolt removers - these:
