i would either weld a nut to it and wind it out or since its threaded into the s/c try to cut or gring the head off and pull the s/c out and remove remaining piece of the bolt with pliers.

You could try either of the above or if it just the head of the bold that you have rounded off you could get some "mole grips" im not sure if you guys in the US call them that but that what i know them as in the UK. They are grips that you can adjust so that when you clamp them on they are real tite. If you had a small pair i think you would be able to get them onto that bolt. It would take some time and patience to get it out but at least you could get yoursc off and then just get a new bolt. Hope this helps, R8

you can hammer on a 12 point socket and use a little heat if necessary

Try a pair of vise grips.That should work...If not then you could cut the head of the bolt off and work it out..It will be a little more work and time consuming...Once you get them out go get 3 new hex head stainless steel bolts..Youll never have that problem again..

The good ole days.....
good luck, patients, lots of it will get that bolt out. When the patients wears off lots of swearing and throwing of tools seem to do the trick

Stripped supercharger bolt
I drilled a 1/8 inch hole carefully through the bolt head and was able to turn it with a small allen wrench through the hole. I hope this helps someone. It didn't take long.

Now I have a good supply of good bolts and only use the right size sockets and wrench in good shape. That back one can be a pita as no room to work.
