CAB Nut Spinning: Where to Drill Floor
'07 Cobalt LS. I (finally) replaced the passenger-side CAB. On the driver's side, the 'nut' has broken free in the cage. I don't see any way to get at the nut/cage from below, and I can just sort of reach it through the wheel well.
I think it would be much easier to get at it from above, by drilling a hole in the floor pan. I've seen this suggested, but no details on where to drill the hole. It looks like it would be more-or-less under the brake pedal, but I'm not very sure.
If anyone has done this, ... where? Thanks.
Bonus question: How did you go through the 'rubber' floor liner (under the carpet)? It looks like a PITA to remove, and feels like there's a considerable thickness of soft (air?) behind it. Can I just knife-out a chunk?
