That nut can be a bastard (archive)

In Reply to: JonM, Thanks, got the console bottom yesterday posted by RADesign on October 24, 2000 at 16:20:07:

The nut has a nylon locking feature that frequently makes it tough to get off. Keep trying. I use a boxed-end offset wrench with a piece of tape on one side to catch the nut when it comes off. If the threads are cross-threaded - which I have seen before on dealer console installations - you either need to apply torque like a rabid dog or cut the bolt. Pulling up on the console with the nut still engaged would be a bad thing.

Let me know if you need more ideas/help/rabies.
