If it breaks, you can always remove the threaded end thats left in the axle hsg with an easy out.I am dong the axle vent mod. The valve has been soaking in WD 40 for a few days in anticipation of removing it. Well, today I tried to remove it and it wouldn't budge and then the bolt started to round off. I can remove it for sure if I wanted to (vise grips), but what if it breaks which looks like where this is heading? I've already blown a pinion seal so I really want to do this but not at the cost of a broken valve. Has anyone snapped it off and what did you do?
Using little heat around the fitting wouldn't hurt either.
