    That was a little hard to read. Anyways, car still running? Drive it to a shop that has at least a 3/4" impact wrench or anything that's stronger than your average gun, and just have them "zap" it off. Put the bolt back on, hand-tight with a ratchet, and you should be able to get it off when you get home.

    Just take it by a shop and have them break it loose with a gun as K2e2ivn suggested. Save yourself the headache and possibly busting yourass on it.
