Hi guys so I just got new bars today I want to put them on my bike but i can't the reason is i can't get the other two stems bolts off. I got two out but not the other two I got top right top and left bottom I have the tools to take out. The thing I don't get is the tool I'm using fit in all the bolts when I did the first two it was easy it fit I unscrew both but the other two is harder I put tool in it doesn't feel the same as the first I did. What is I'm doing wrong please I need help can you guys give me any suggestion on how to take them out. I know you have take right top and left bottom left top right bottom is that the right way to take off a stem.

is the bolt stripped? if it is, the best way to get it out is by welding a shitty allen key to it and using that to get it off
those drill attachments to get them out dont work great, if you can afford it, take an angle grinder and cut the bolts of if you dont plan on using the stem any more

How could you tell if the bolt are stripped could you tell if the bolts are stripped if it spray painted. My stem is spray painted and the bolts.

if its stripped the allen key will not loosen it, it will just slip and round out the bolts
i think you are just being a pussy about loosening bolts
maybe try some oil or wd40 to loosen up the bolt

I try WD40 it still wont come off. I think my bolts are stripped because when did the first two it work fine when I put allen key in the bolts it felt tight I unscrew the both. But the other two bolts they felt loose like when i put the allen key in it won't stay in.

Stripped the bolt heads. Weld that shit. Take it to a bike shop.
