Angry Quick need help fast

I am installing my new seats today and I have 1 bolt that attaches the rails to the frame that will not come out I think that when I had my amp installed they stripped the bolt and didn't bother to tell me about it. It is secure in the frame and just spins I can turn it with my fingers very easily but it feels like it has no thread to turn against have tried pulling and turning and brute force neither have been very sucessful any advice on another method would be of great help.

If it's stripped, then try prying up on the bolt head with a screwdriver while spinning it. That might get it out. If not, I don't know what else to try.

Try putting a flat blade screwdriver under the head and twisting so there is force pulling it outward, then turn it with a set of pliers or a socket/ratchet and see if you can catch a thread and get it to unscrew out. If that fails, grab a vice grip and clamp it on tight. Pull and unscrew at the same time (same concept, more pressure).

Tried both of those unfortunately for the last hour. I don't want to cut it for fear of losing the threads in the chassis and never being able to properly mount the seat any other ideas.

Thanks for the quick response though.

Put it back together and take it to the stereo store. Demand that they get it out. I'm just a prick like that, I hate it when people damage my property and make me pay for it.
