It should come right out. When you say "won't come loose"...do you mean the bolt won't loosen in the threads, or the bolt is loose but won't come out?

Spray a bit of WD40 or similar penetrant on the bolt. Wait 20min, then try again. If it's still no-go...spray it again and wait 45min then try again.

If this fails...it's impact wrench time.

Oh and be careful "cranking" on it. You put too much godzilla on that thing you'll snap it off at the head. Then it's down to the hardware store for an easy-out set.

Don't let the name fool ya though...dicking around with easy-outs is anything but easy...

Next time, besides de WD40, tie the screw or bolt and then turn to the other side few times, that make that job easier :D
