    Alright so im finally to the point of replacing my clutch. It was a spring in the disc that broke and was in like 5 pieces flying around. But anyways a piece of the spring was between the disc and the flywheel and messed up some of the heads on the flywheel bolts. But since those bolt heads are so short there isnt enough contact between the heads and my socket so the tips on the inside of the socket get ground down and then will just spin on the bolts. I've been able to get three of the bolts off but i can't get anymore to budge. I would try an impact socket but i havent seen any 12pt impact sockets, i don't even know if their made. Any ideas?

    I used 12pt chrome vandium sockets for the pressure plate and flywheel.. anything else rounds them off.
