Anyone have any advice who HAS done this? I don't want to have to go & spend money on install after I saved it with my double discount codes.
if they were installed with locktite you can heat the head of a screw with a butane torch, a hair drier, a flame thrower, etc and they will back right out.

I doubt they are seized up with corrosion, but it would not surprise me if they were installed with locktite.
