It's about #$%*&#@ time!
Only took me 3 days to get this top SC bolt removed after my pos 12 point 1/4 wrench stripped it.
After repeated blows with the hammer and center punch hoping to break the bolt loose I was finally able to get it removed with the vice grips. This was almost as bad as the rusted egr tube on my z car. At least with that I could remove the head and work it on the bench.
I'm definitely replacing this with a 10mm NORMAL freaking bolt.

Yeah that sucked ass!
My wife would come out listen to about 5 seconds of choice fraises then turn around and go back into the house. I guess she has learned from the past not to bother me when something mechanical is kicking my ass
FYI for everyone. The TORX gator wrench set that sears sells does NOT fit in the tiny space around this bolt, save your money. I'm going to be returning about $115 worth of tools that I will never use, but bought in hopes of getting that bolt removed. It came down to the $5 center punch $20 hammer and $5 vice grips all of which were already in my tool box

The Torx set from Sears fits just fine "if" you take a dremel to the wrench and grind it off a bit so it will fit. Did that and it works great for the daly removal of the SC

I think I'll return it anyway and just replace that bolt with a 10mm hex head.

Ones you get the stock bolts out of the SC see how far you can throw them Then put in ss 10mm head bolts and save your self a lot of pain in the a$$ trouble
