Getting a fairing bolt out

So the problem is this top fairing bolt on the upper that connects the upper to the mid to the ram air cover is stuck. the interior well-nut i think thats what its called has seperated from the rubber housing. So now the bolt just spins And advice on how to remove it would be greatly appreciated =)

Well, if you can, try to get a pair of needle nose plier around that well-nut. The friciton should be enough to enabe you to remove the bolt from the nut. If you can't get pliers in there, try putting lateral pressure on the wee-nut (pull apart the two pieces) while unscrewing the bolt.
