2023.06.16 [Screw Rescue Report] Stripped screws on HILUX the tailgate 1

We received an SOS message from Kamakura City in Kanagawa Prefecture, located in the central part of Japan, regarding a stripped screw on the HILUX tailgate.

"When I install a lift assist, I needed to remove the Torx screw on the tailgate, but it was extremely tight and ended up getting completely stripped. Is there any way I can remove this screw? "

Based on the images he provided, we urgently dispatched a set of Neji-saurus Mogura (Socket Screw Extractors) set. We also provided previous rescue case examples and a video on how to use the Neji-saurus Mogura.

After he tried several additional tools that we dispatched, we received the joyful message:

"I successfully managed to remove the Torx screw! Thank you so much!"

Recently, we have noticed an increase in tailgate Torx screw troubles. Please exercise caution when removing screws.

For all your screw-related issues, trust Neji-saurus and Screw Rescue Team!

The new all-purpose Nejisaurus GTV PZ-77 is also very popular now.
