Hi All. The mountings for the side bars on my Jimny are quite rusty. When placing some weight on one today it came away from its front mounting. There was no way (I could find) to attach it and as the rear mount was also fairly rusty I pulled the side bar off lest it detach while driving around.

I managed to remove the front mount, but it left a hole with a bolt sticking out of it. I could not see a way of removing this bolt, so reattached the front mount as it didn't seem a good idea to leave the bole in place and wait for it to disappear into what I think is a chassis tube which spans the width of car.

Any ideas what I should do? I now have no side bar and 2 fairlty sharp rusted mount stumps. I had a look at removing the rear one but couldn't make sense of how to get it off. I also though about just using a hacksaw to reduce the jaggedness and length of the mount stump.

Pictures are attached and hopefully viewable.
