Hex bolt stuck in TE


I was trying to mod my joystick so I took off the top panel of the TE just fine using the 3mm Hex Key and when I tried putting back in the hex screws into the TE after putting on the new ball top, the screw got stuck.

I have tried numerous things, I just don’t want to saw it off because I have a feeling it will just be stuck there for good, so I am wondering is there any cure to this problem.

I have tried removing it with a drill using an extractor. Is there any other suggestions?

EDIT- Sorry for title, I meant screw


Post a pic and to see how it is stuck.


I’ll do this tomorrow, I just got off of work and am really tired. Will update.


how the…
did you like force it in sideways and rip the nut a new one?
