Illusion tower

Recommended Posts

I have a 2009 Wakesetter VLx with the illusion tower. I am trying to remove the hoop bar with the ball attached to it so it will fit in my garage. The problem is I can't get the two 3/8 allen bolts out. They only turn a quarter turn each way. Any ideas on how to remove this?

Maybe spray some PB blaster around head and hope it may get into threads or try to heat w torch. The small butane torches have fine flames and heat may expand it and come apart easier. (If ya try any type of chemical stuff,,make sure to wait awhile before ya try any heat of any kind.)

Also,at times taking a small "punch" and lightly dinging the head of the bolt to create some harmonic vibrating will help break threads loose, be carful not to hard tho and could make it bind up worse.
