    So let’s say I’m unable to get the bolt out or it seems like it has messed up the threads what is the process for getting the inserts replaced?

I have till spring to get it fixed so not a huge rush.
    I started to suggest the welding technique but stopped. That is my go-to method but you want to make sure it to get the bolt too hot.

    Ok, so nothing works getting the bolt out
    First you have to gain access to the bracket, so remove what you have to to gain access. From the rideplate side screw-in your good bolt Then from the inside heat the bracket and the blob of glue with a heat gun until it’s good and hot. Then from the rideplate side smack the good bolt and the broken one until the bracket comes loose
    Then you must remove any glue and sealant from the inside and lightly sand to scratch the surface, clean with acetone and reinstall new bracket with 3m 4200 or 5200 and bolt rideplate back on and let sealant dry before putting back in the water
    Hope this helps

    This honestly will be the easiest way to deal with it. I didn’t even need heat to pop mine out. But it does help.
