allen wrech right? got the right size? be sure to use metric bc there so close in sizes, one bolt can be off by a nanometer and wouldnt work right..as far as getting it out if it is the bolt being striped gt a left handed drill bit get it to bite th end of the bolt and as its spining (slowly) pull up with the drill (note left handed drill bit should turn left to drill in)

you could try to hammer in the next size up wrench or wrap the tip in electrical tape.

if neither of those work, you could JB weld another bolt to the top of it and use it to remove it or go get a set of easy outs from a hardware store.

hes saying the bolt is stripped not the head...still try the left handed bit..if its striped and tourqued then it should pull its self easyer
