Default Camry 95 - spare wheel screw rusted

Hi all,

Have a '95 Camry. Haven't removed the spare wheel in a long time. Noticed
that the "screw" in the trunk is apparently rusted and refused to "unscrew".
Is there any solution to this? Have tried brute force, but doesn't seem to
work.

Thanks,
MD.

I've found WD40 and similiar products work well with rusted in bolts (except
for severely rusted, on the coast and the like)..but there is not a lot of
space there,..but the thin tube that clips into the spray-can nozzle may
help there.

Leave it overnight if possible before trying. Screw the bolt back and forth
with a bias towards anti-clockwise.

Genereal Motors markets a Pentrating Oil that is excellent. I sprayed some
on the rusted radator mounting bolts and the Mac. strut bolts on my '95
Tercel, and in 2 days they looked new!

Liquid Wrench. Turpentine also works good.
