Default Need help with skid plate

So on my 2009 wrx the bolts holding my skid plate on will get tight but then just spin freely and I can't remove them. I can only remove one then I have been bending the skid plate to replace my oil filter each time I change my oil (bought the car used and have been doing it ever since) but now I want to flush my coolant so I need to get this skid plate off. Has anyone else had this problem and have a solution to remove the bolts? I need the skid plate to protect my cold air intake from water so I don't want to ruin anything permanently. Any help is appreciated

Having similar problems with my 2011 WRX. Skidplate is about trashed from running over/through debris on the road. At this point I'm probably gonna make a skiplate myself, just started researching it.
Have you tried cutting off the bolts? Or using a stripped bolt remover kit?

The bolts themselves aren't stripped. Whatever they thread into is messed up because they just spin freely. I haven't gotten the chance to try cutting them or anything yet. I was hoping someone would have a solution on here before I go about doing something that can't be undone
