May the force be with you when you take off the bolts.......

(If you get them off with out breaking the socket or breaking the bolt*shiner*)

I know there is a good chance of that happening, gonna start spraying them every day with wd-40 today, might help by sunday, luckly the dealership is only a 15 minute drive from my place if I need new ones

WD-40 typically doesn't work very well.. invest $5 in a can of penetrating agent, there a lots to chose from and they all work pretty good.

You might also want to use an old toothbrush to clean out the inside of the bolt head so the bit fits super snug, then use a hammer on the tool to break the bolt free. You must have a very snug fit to do this.

You can use your existing toothbrush if you like it to smell minty and you don't mind the taste of rust. :)
