CPS Removal Gone Wrong...

Hey guys... in my first few eeks with my new OBS, I have encountered a stubborn CPS bolt that is now rounded off.

I have tried everything I know...
bolt outs, bolt buster, vice grips, smaller sockets, jb weld, etc.. My hands and arms are too big to get in there and really make anything happen.

I am planning to get after it from the front this weekend and was hoping for a quick hit list of what has to be removed to access it from straight on. Thanks in advance.

It's most easily accessed from underneath, which puts the 10mm bolt at about the 10 o'clock position. If it'll run, try it on a warm engine and use copious amounts of pB'laster or WD-40. It shouldn't have more than about 10-15 ft-lbs of torque on it though.

10mm head, right? Try the 3/8" bolt-out. Also try multiple brands. I had a 10mm-head bolt for the belt tensioner in my Saturn round off. Craftsman bolt-out socket epic failed; started to chew up the "teeth" of the socket. Believe it or not, the cheapo Harbor Freight version got 'er done .
