Siezed Bolt/Connector Advice
I am in the process of replacing the hose from my dryer to evaporator. The inside connection came undone no problems but the connector to the dryer is giving me fits!
The mounting brace for the dryer is not very strong so I am unable to really "get on it" when trying to loosen this. I have braced the bracket as good as I can but I still can not get the bolt to turn. I have soaked and let it sit with PB Blaster and WD40 over night. I have tried heating the bolt as well but with its precarious placement I am not able to give it too much heat bc I dont want to melt anything else.
Anyone have any suggestions to a safe way of getting this connector undone? I am more than likely going to go ahead and replace the dryer as well if that makes a difference.
