help on stripped screw >.>

i am trying to get my slave cylinder out but the bottom 12mm screw is stripped and cant take it out i tried everything, it just wouldnt come off. there is not much room to work with too since its so tight down there, i already took out the fan. any ideas?

Get a set of screw extractor. You drill a hole and tap the extractor in and turn it. The threads are backwards so it grips hard the harder you turn and they have bolt extractors too.

Vise grips. Even if you have to make it so tight it takes 2 people squeezing to clamp it down. Itll work if u can get them on. I know its a horrible place to work though, super tight. Might be worth your time to take the front bumper off lol. Why in Gods name couldnt Honda have just put the bolts on top of the slave?

YUP!! works the best both of them. If your using the bot extractor don't get discouraged it takes a bit longer for the threads to catch the inside of the bolt. works like a charm though broke my bolt on my ac lines, but finally took it out. :)
