Help Me! Idler pulley nut stripped! and ISC solenoid Q's!

Hey, my air con belt is slipping a bit, so i went to tighten it, and upon trying to undo the idler pulley nut, stripped the bolt. I need to know how i can go about getting this little sucker undone because the belt slip is annoying the hell out of me.

Also, i need to raise my idle a few hundred RPM and to do this i need to undo the wiring to the ISC solenoid...now i have no idea where this is or what it looks like so if someone could tell me or show me with a picture where this clip is it would be really apprecieated.

NOTE: Car is a '91 EB fairmont


Thanks

Dane.

Try a single hex socket or an impact socket bash it on & try to undo it.
Or try a pair of vicegrips..

Re: Help Me! Idler pulley nut stripped! and ISC solenoid Q's!

The ISC on top of your intake maifold...straight off the airbox ducting as it goes into the mainfold. Should be held in with 2 screws. And good luck trying to raise the idle. That idle screw is stuck in there from factory. There is a procedure to raise the idle while the ISC is disconnected, but I tried this and it didnt do anything.
