xt350 stripped reservoir screws?

Recommended Posts

Got my "new" XT350 about a month or so ago and am doing some prsafe to eliminary maintenance. Thought I would bleed the brakes (very mushy) and cannot get the screws out of the lid to the reservoir. The phillips slot is pretty buggered up and they wont budge. Any wisdom on this? Save to heat it up with a hairdryer?

Do you have a impact screwdriver ? If not ,get one. You should use a impact screwdriver to loosen every screw on the bike .

if that does not work,  you can use a left handed drill bit to drill them out.  some times you get lucky and the bit bites enough to get the screw out.
