Im was trying to install my front lip but I remember overtightening this bolt last time and now it wont come off. I can keep turning it and turning but it just doesnt come out. How can I get this this off?

^^^ :yeahthat: ^^^

You need to apply a "pulling force" while turning counterclockwise. Wedging a small screwdriver or putty knife (gently) between the frame and bolt might help do that.

I'm confused - is the problem that the head is stripped out so that you cannot turn the bolt with a hex bit or is the problem that the threads are stripped & the bolt spins freely but won't bite the threads & back out?
