I had to use a dremel and cut that son of a gun off! Snap on makes 10 mm 0 degree offset wrench that worked perfectly for me.. too bad I didn't have it before i stripped the bolt!

dremmel,blue wrench(torch),saw zall,10pound sledge....just kiddin on the torch...dremmel is bout the only way.when you get er out,go to fastenal and get you a num 10 bolt.its a very hard bolt,so next time you go to take it off,you wont round it.

use a bolt extractor,looks like a one-in-all bit but threads backwards and thick cut.put it in a drill and reverse and go to town.itll come out.sell in packs of five at any tool,hardware,auto store

thanks for all the replys. i almost took a prybar to break the pedestal out. then i calmed down and decided to ask on here. i was looking at those extractors, but live on an island. there is one set for sell for $270. then i was going to cut off the head but i would still be left with the problem of removing the stud. although right now cutting the head off with a dremel seems like the way to go. thanks again.

if the threads go all the way to the head of the bolt,cut it off and find a nut that is the same thread size.
