They have them at Sears I know. But what bolt is it becasue that will determine if you can drill it out or not. If it is something internal then it cant be drilled out because the metal shavings will go in the engine. So what bolt is it??
try a needle nose vice grip. i had to use that when the bolt for my valve cover striped out. If you can get a drill under there, an easy out(basically a reverse threaded dril bit that bites the head inside and allows it to be loosened) they will have them at any hardware store.

damn it guys this shit sucks, i bought the gator grip thing and guess wat, it ended up fucking the bolt up even more, the only thing left to do is take it to a shop. ill finish this install guide ones i get my mounts done, should be by the end of jan, but yeah stick around
that mite work but i have not clue wat a dremmel is, me and a friend needed one because it says to dremmel something to get the hid bulb to hold or some shit, but we never knew wtf it was, any idea of were to get it, but it might be hard to get lebrage just by using a screw driver
ahh now we're getting somewhere. If you use the dremel and can't get an even size for a socket, THEN the gator grip will have some edges to cling onto! Watch the sparks from the dremel! Not sure how close that bolt is to your fuel or oil, can't exactly place where it's located from your pic.
OK, here's a wild-ass idea. Heat the head with a propane torch to make the metal more malleable. Then while its still hot, pound a smaller socket onto it. Wait for it to cool some, then try twisting it off.
Or just take it to a shop.
300,000 KM/Sec. Its not just a good idea, its the law.
my dad told me to do that, but even if its really hot, there is basicly no more grip on the bolt at all, i need to get a torch do, ill try to buy one of those torch lighter and give it a try, but its 2 cool now days, and i dont have a garage so yeah, thanks for helping me guys
