Default Stripped screw on BOV eblow

I think the part connected to the BOV is called the elbow. Well im trying to remove the after market BOV but i just cant seem to remove that circled screw, i also stripped it. The other side came off just fine as you can see. Any ideas on how to remove that screw? thanks!

We cannot see, you did not post a picture.

Depending on how it's stripped, you can drill it out, grab an ez out, or simply locking pliers.

Drill it out.

Don't know how?

You need to drill it so that the head separates from the shaft.

OR

Buy an easy out.

It looks like enough of the head is there to get a "manual impact driver" with a large Philips bit, and if that doesn't work the easy out can still be used.

Use a Dremel(r) and slot the head, then use a flathead driver.

Use medium channel locks and clamp it on the stripped screw TIGHT! And slowly turn. Worst case if it were me I would do as directed previously and drill the screw out and hope for the best. If you strip the threading on the Intercooler re tap it. Hope you get it!!

Yes.. OP try this method. I didnt have a dremmel when i did this but its the same principle. I hammered away at the head of the screw with a flathead, enough to create a deep enough slot where a flathead screw driver did the trick and removed that pesky screw. This was when installing my forge bpv.
