Hey there. I am new to the forum and have never posted anything on the internet such as this. I have a new to me 332. First night I parked in the shop on concrete. Woke up the next morning and I noticed a fluid leak underneath the transmission. After removing the seat and metal pan on which you sit (sorry, donít know itís technical name yet) I found it where the problem is coming from. It is the Flair nut on the hydraulic line atop the transmission. Iíve decided to remove and replace the line. My local John Deere store said the part is no longer available. I contacted my local hydraulic repair shop and they have no problem repairing it.
However, I needed to remove the radiator in order to access the other side of the line. I thought I would be able to remove the metal side panel on the right side of the center console in an effort for more working space and to clean up all that I could reach. But the bolt connecting to the frame with the rubber pad cushioning the seat deck has me baffled. Iíve tried everything I can think of to remove it. There is no bolt head. Only a rounded piece. There is no way to get any sockets or wrenches on it. I tried delicately prying it. But that was unsuccessful as well. Not sure what I am missing here. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
