Like the title says, I was doing a ring swap and while torquing down the rod bolts the torque wrench wouldnt click. I gave it one more try and the nut twisted the bolt right off >< . the motor in questions is a d16zc sohc vtec (d16z6)

I called honda and ordered new bolts for the rod, and they claim they should just come out with some light taps. I cant get them out with light taps and I dont want to move on to hard taps in fear of damaging the rod.

I just wanted to make sure these dont need to be pressed out or anything rediculous.

i'm not sure i understand how tapping on it would remove a broken off bolt. Its threaded in there. Post up pictures of what you're talking about

Spray some wd40 and knock it out

ok, I was planning on beating like it owes me money, but I didnt want to risk breaking the rod and having to buy a new one :) thanks for clearing that up for me.

I've always heard that rod bolts are pressed in/out, and after the pressing procedure, you need to have the rods with caps torqued on ,checked and milled for true concentricity.....

Is it ok if a I sig quote myself for that one? ROFL!

and no I didnt even put em in the vice, I just put on my oj glove and whacked it acouple times it popped right out. I dont think there was any pressing involved, honda told me the should tap out as well.
