I had a similar problem, but it was my torx bit that broke off inside the bolt... Had to drill it a hole in tool steel to get it out.
I've had varied success with stubborn fasteners using an air chisel(carefully). If you have enough metal left, hit the bolt at an angle to turn it, or go at it straight and it MAY loosen. This has worked well on rusted bolts/nuts for me. good luck !With a combination of my impact driver and a socket wrench, I’ve been Attempting to remove the door hinge t50 bolts. However, I’ve not only gouged the everloving hell out of my Jeep but I’ve also stripped 2 of the bolts. Any suggestions on how to get these out? I’ve not had to use any kind of extractor before and I’m unsure of the route I need to go. The bolts don’t need to be saved, I just need them out of there.
Something like this:What steps are being installed? Sorry for my ignorance have not seen anything needing to remove hing bolts. As for your problem dremel slot and a big fat flat head screw driver with Cresent wrench might do it. Or drink a few beers take to a shop so it their problem!
That's the technique I used when i had to remove the rear hinges for the oversized tire carrier. I hammered the torq socket in until it was tight. Then it was no issues coming out.
