if youve got a impact gun that might be your best bet. Otherwise put some spit on your hands and grip it!! HOWEVER...... is there is a chance that the bolt might be stripped?? Those bolts along with a lot of other bolts are put in with loctight. so heat and time only strengthen the bond.

if you have a power drill connect the socket and put the power drill to the lowest torque. make quick short pumps to try and remove it like an impact gun. the little quick pumps with the socket on the power drill should at LEAST loosen it a bit. be patient though if you just grind it all the way out on one drill you could definately strip it.

ok thanks for the help.

i ended up running out before the stores closed and bought a 6 point socket instead of 12. worked great.

12pt sockets suck. Invest in some quality 6pt sockets. I would also replace that bolt that started to round off on you.
