Mercedes C32 AMG Project Build - Part 5 - Broken & Ripped Out Subframe Bolts Repair

Fix for the left rear subframe bolt that broke off and had to be extracted. Also a fix for the right rear subframe bolt that completely ripped out of the body / frame mounting point. I'm not certain how this happened... I bought the car knowing it had this problem... but I felt confident I could fix it. I'll post up a short and long term test of how it holds once I get it road worthy again :)

More info and description to come...

Thanks to all those at the MBWorld forums that have gone before me! Essentially this is the post I used to "fix" / "repair" both of these issues.


I recently picked up a "project car" to have a little fun with. I thought it would be interesting and a learning experience. The car I ended up with is 2002 Mercedes-Benz C32 AMG. I chose those for a few reasons. First because it was a really (relatively) cheap find on craigslist. Second because it was a really (relatively) fast car in it's day. And lastly because I'm already a little familiar with the make and engine since I currently get to play around in my SLK32 AMG. You can go to the links below for more in depth information on both cars. Both use the same hand built 3.2-liter, twin-ignition, 3-valve 90-degree V-6 AMG engines with an output of 354 bhp at 6100 rpm and 332 lb.-ft. of torque at 4400 rpm.
