yo you could try removing your wheel fill the kettle and boil it then poor the boiling water over the part that the bolts are stuck in this will expand the metal slightly relesing the pressure on the bolts and threds so that the bolt should come out with reletive easy whenever iv got a stuck bolt that starts rounding off thats what i do it usualy works

Hi mate, Right if the actual allen key head is rounding on the bolt then get some grips on the head and loosen it that way. If that dosn`t work or the freed is rounding off, the only other option really is to cut the head of the bolt off, And then drill it out and re freed it. Have you used WD40 ? If you havn`t then spray a can of that in, And work the bolt loose don`t try and un-do it the whole way straight away work it bit by bit.

Hope i was some help, Good luck.

Alex Mac.
