Default Pick and Pull junk yard question

I posted here, since I figured I would get a honest answer LOL

If you need a part thats on the inside of the door, Do you just take the panel off and put it in the back and take what you need?

I have never been to one so I don't know how they operate.

Also can you take a small torch to heat up rusty bolt's?

Does Parts Galore Take Plastic(credit or debt card?) they dont answer there phones

Parts Galore and most places don't let you bring torches or anything of that matter

That sucks because trying to get the 3 bolts off that hold on a lock actuator is going to be hard since they are t-30 star heads and most likely rusted I know mine were and I had to heat them up

Thanks for the quick response

Copied from another site:

Credit cards and debit cards have to be matching to your exact name on your license. I think they also charge 2% transaction fee for credit cards

I have seen people sneak small torches in. No I'm not saying to do so. Could you drill the heads of the bolts with a cordless drill? Or use a and a hand impact wrench?

You could try a impact driver (the kind you smack with a hammer) if you get a t30 torx for it.

Just bring a BIG breaker bar, bf hammer, impact torx, impact deep sockets, a cordless drill with a medal drill bit and just drill out any bolts that you can not break. They will let you use a mini torch just don't advertise it. That should be all you really need anyway. A saw-saw is only if you want to get something like a roof or something.

As far as credit just use cash it is easier to get your money back when you come back with the core.
