Okay, flywheel bolts stripped!

This blows ass...aight, recieved my clutch yesterday and everything went pretty smooth for the clutch install but since my stock disc literally exploded well at least a quarter of it, I had to replace my flywheel as well. Now my less than helpfull bro-in-law already stripped one of my flywheel bolts perviously when he tried "helping" me during my motor swap now his ass stripped almost all my flywheel bolts! Obviously I need new bolts and I need a new rear oil retainer, where the flywheel connects to. My question is how do I take that rear oil retainer out without damaging my motor or anything around it? Looked in my FSM and that thing was useless on that subject. I know that the ring with the flywheel holes is connectec to the crank so how do I take that out as well without damaging anything? This seriously is pissing me off and I don't know where else to turn to but the always useful forum. Any opinions would be appreciated. Need help pretty bad. Thanks for everybody's time.

You definately need to remove the flywheel in order to get to the seal retainer.
You can buy reversed bolt/ nut extractors at sears or your local parts store that will fit over the bolt head and as you turn it anticlockwise it will grip the bolt and pull it.

Reversed bolt/nut extractors from what I understand what you said basically bolts up to the flywheel bolts/rear oil seal retainer and I tighten it and then pull it out without causing any damage? Sounds great to me actually. I already took my flywheel off and just doing some research before I tackle it again. I'll try that but any more advice would be greatly appreciated. Keep those replies coming! Thanks.

umm maybe I misunderstood you.. I thought your main problem/ concern was getting the stripped flywheel bolts removed so you can get the flywheel off to replace it with a different one.. The extractor I told you about was for the stripped flywheel bolts.

Well, where the flywheel bolts up to (the rear oil seal retainer) or the circle 'inside' of the rear oil seal retainer (where the flywheel bolts up to) is damaged. Threads are stripped. So I figured I have to replace the circle with the fucked up threads but I can't figure out how to take out the rear oil seal or the circle with the threads (which is connected to the crankshaft I'm assuming) out. That would be my problem. Advice?

If the holes are stripped then you need a new crank really or drill and tap for bigger bolts. I suppose helicoils may hold it but I'd prefer something more permanent myself.

You'd need to drill the flywheel holes too like you do when you fit it to a GTi-R engine.

I'm sure others have used helicoils but I doubt for all the bolts.

^^^ Post 7 in that thread, he says he's helicoiled all the holes and it's been fine for a year.

Ding ding ding... Stripped threads! you said nothing about the threads being stripped in the first post... I thought the bolt heads were stripped.

Well, the bolt heads ARE stripped and the thread holes where the flywheel bolts up too also. So from that link to the thread you gave me marksbut3 people used that helicoil technique and it lasted give or take 2 year, me, I just swaped this JDM motor in and this is going to be my motor I'll boost not too long from now so thats not an option unless it's going to last for awhile. Is this even worth doing though? And, how much does this usually run at a shop? Thanks for everybody's advice. Keep that shitz coming.

Yeah, pretty much. Naw, but really, I'm just wondering if there is any other way besides the helicoil option or the swap the crank option (which I'm not on that mechanical level yet). I'm still very much stuck just trying to do research before anything so still open to advice and opinions. Thanks again.
