Default Stripped Screws.

Came across some stripped screws today in my buggy and was wondering on whats a good way to get them out. Any suggestions?

hands down best thing i have ever used to remove stripped screws : http://www.acehardwareoutlet.com/%28...px?SKU=2192573

you really only need the #0 bit, but i like to have the whole kit, just incase

ive pulled everything out with this. tiny set screws to large threadlocked bolts, and everything in between. love it!

A drill and this will be a life safer when those screws get stripped out. You can find the bit set at most Home Depot or Lowes.

probably not. you could cut a slot on the head with a dremel, and try to get it out with a flat head screwdriver, but that screws up anything around the head of the bolt if you have to cut into that too.

I had several stripped out also - took it to our shop (I work for a car dealer) and a tech used torx heads on a socket to get them out. Came out without any effort.
