    Few methods.

    - Try tightening it a 1/4 turn first as a rusted bolt will tighten easier then undo due to cleaner threads. If you get a tiny turn tight then wd up and undo.
    - Hammer in the next size torq bit.
    - Use hammer and chisel to open it up. Sometime i use the dremel to make a little groove in it for the chisel to grip.
    - Heat. Warm the thing up the try removing.
    - Big 16 side socket over the entire bolt head.
    - Use a dremel to square the hole the drive in a 1/4 or half inch extension bar and try to undo.

    Is your car off the ground at the moment?

    How crucial is it that this is done is it just routine maintenance?

    What size Torx/Allen is this?

    Can we have a wider shot of the location , just wondering what space or not you have to work with?
