Had this happen to me at my old job once, on a forklift. Just got the next size down (real next size between metric/standard) 12pt, And got it out that way. I got the socket straight as I could and hammered it down on the head. Any way you can do somethin like that maybe?

That or go buy a set of bolt removers. They come in a few sizes and are pretty sharp inside so that they barely fit over the bolt but then cut into it when you try to back it out. Never had to use em but the screw removal ones are pretty good.

Snap On makes sockets for such a scenario, but most people dont have them, lol, as stated you could hammer a smaller socket into the stripped bolt head, in this case the bolt head is a 10mm, try and hammer a 3/8, which is slightly smaller onto it

There is no room in there to do anything.I do have special socket set to remove stripped bolt heads,but can't get a 3/8 ratcet in there to get at it...as a matter of fact can barely get one hand in behind the turbo....
