Broken Tow Hook In another testimony to the Linea's weight , I now have a broken tow hook On our recent trip to Jaisalmer , the front wheels car got stuck in the dunes just about a meter or so off the main road. A 4x4 Bolero arrived from the neighboring village and tried to tow the car using the front tow hook. He decided to take a very wide U-turn in an attempt to get the car back on the road and the hook just snapped halfway through the turn. The result is now that half of the threaded portion of the hook is stuck inside the socket in the chassis , while the other half lies somewhere among the sands of Jaisalmer. Any thoughts on how the stuck bit can be extracted , and how a better hook can be procured ?
