Rusted Nut and Bolt Holding Kitchen Tap

Postby colman12 » Sun Dec 30, 2018 9:53 pm


Pretty basic DIyer so be kind, attempting to fit a new kitchen tap, as the current one is dripping and I think it has ceramic discs which mean it has to be replaced ( that’s what I have read)

The tap is held into the basin with a bolt and nut

The access is ridiculously tight and the nut / bolt is rusted up.

Any advice or tools I can use?

I noticed there is a flat head groove at the base of the bolt, which I thought I could undo to remove the the bolt but it wouldn’t budge
