2023.05.23 [Screw Rescue Report] The stripped screws are fixing the rear fan motor of the car naviga

Received an SOS about the fan motor for car navigation systems from Hiroshima Prefecture.

"I tried to remove the 4-5mm diameter screws on the back of my car navigation system's fan motor, but it seems to have a Threadlocker, and the screws got stripped.

I want to replace the fan motor with a new one. Can I get some advice?"

He immediately shipped it to our headquarters in Osaka, and the Screw Rescue Team initiated an emergency operation.

Indeed, the screw had a Threadlocker applied and was quite stuck. However, using a modified Neji-saurus Mogura (Socket Screw Extractor) with a trick, we successfully extracted the two screws.

"I have successfully replaced the fan motor with a new one. I am truly grateful. I promptly purchased Neji-saurus (Screw Removal Pliers) from the hardware store. I will make sure to utilize it in the future!

We received this delightful feedback.

For any future screw-related troubles, remember to reach out to the Screw Rescue Team.

What is a trick?

By making a pilot hole on the screw head by drill, Neji-saurus Mogura (Socket Screw Extractor) can extract the screw regardless of its head shape.
