    Impact gun, easiest way I find.
    Make sure you use a good one, and try to make sure the engine doesn't turn while you are doing it.

    I'm a little confused. Is a impact gun an air tool? I yes i will then need to buy an air compressor. What minimum hp should it be? How to get the motor not moving ? Thanks.

    take it to a shop somewhere if you don't have air tools and a compressor, it'll cost you nothing or close to it for them to remove the bolt. If you live near albany, NY Ill do it at my place.

    Thanks for the offer but unfortunately i leave in boston ma.:( . I took to a shop this afternoon. That thing is so heavy. My back is still killing me after i loaded it in a dx hatch. Not recommended at all. They asked me to come back tomorrow morning.

    I've took it to a shop and it was amazing how easy it was for them to get it out with a impact gun (air tool). Thanks for all your help.

    I learned my lesson after breaking 2 sockets with a breaker bar.
