Judging from the mirrored image, that nut is inside the lip of the basket rim. You could use a 1/4" ratchet and a 8mm socket.Anyone ever replaced terminals on a Sundown X series or similar, Skar, etc? The bolt is flush with the basket and in a tough spot. Could use tips if anyone has a clever solution.
I assume the bolt is an allen type. If so, you could drill it out, then replace it with the same. You can then install the allen head on the inside since allen keys are small.The attached image shows what I'm dealing with. The area behind the spokes is very slightly indented. A snake cam was required to take the picture at the top of this post. View attachment 45340
Try holding the nut and turning the terminal.
Is there enough room to solder direct leads and just bypass the spring terminals?
Great Ms paint skills btw 👍
Using Super glue will Fail from Vibrations more than likely, Solder joint is pretty secure and doesnt take alot of Real effort and will last.. Just my 0.02 centsHonestly that's probably the answer here. It doesn't have a warranty since I got it second-hand on eBay so shipping it out just to get new terminals will cost me probably $200-$300.
Edit: Hell, for that matter I could maybe superglue the broken terminals back together / back to the basket

Super easy and Cheap..Ill bet your father or Gramps can solder it pretty easily?? You Tube is your friend too. As well as H.freight /Lowes/or H.Depot for a kit or Parts Express. You may even Call up a Computer or TV repair shop and ask??Do you know anyone that works in Plumbing? A/C? Those guys solder DAILYI'm sure you're right. The only issue is I don't know how to solder. A buddy showed me how once but it's not a skill I ever developed.
