    Accident

    where are all the infractions for the people bashing the noob indirectly, obviously the OP didn't take it as a joke and took it as bashing, went on a nice cussout fest and got put in a timeout all cause the noob got bashed, someone protect that noob instead of putting him in a time out.

    I had another idea if you want something DIY and free: find a similarly sized but smaller socket (instead of using one a full mm smaller for a metric nut, try using a non-metric socket that's just slightly smaller) and gorilla it onto the nut if possible.

    Another idea: a nut breaker (someone ban me please).

    I forgot to mention that you should be using 6-point sockets (more area) and if you do decide to hammer on a smaller socket, be sure you don't do more damage.

    Ive stripped so many bolts on my subaru. My advice is to heat it up and use vice grips. I remember one time my BPV bolt broke in half.

    Agreed. Another idea is to try heat/cool cycles repeatedly.

    Have you tried a line wrench? Have you soaked it with PB blaster or equivalent?

    If you use ice and a torch back and forth be sure to wear eye protection and be sure you're only affecting the nut, nothing else. A gentler way is to let it cool to where you can touch it, then ice it, and so on.
