Rear Bed Tie Downs

Tried to remove the passenger side tie down from my 2009 Titan. One of the bolts was broken off. The other bolt twisted off after I had it about 1/2 out. Is there a trick to removing the bolts?

Nope no trick; just be prepared to snap the bolt heads. Soaked all of mine down and had snapped heads on both back passenger bolts. Had to drill and tap for new bolts, which was fine because I put meatier bolts in there.

Nissan really **** the bed with the bolts they used on a lot of body stuff, it was one thing I really hated about my truck all the years I had it. Snapped bolt heads in the skid plate, tie downs, bumper bracket, side step mounts, and probably one or two I don't remember because Nissan used cheap *** bolts that were too thin. I got good at drilling and tapping the body, as I had to do 4 of them on the skid plate, 2 on the hold downs, 2 on the bumper bracket, etc.
