Default Need Help Removing Rounded Nut on Coil Pack

Trying to change coil packs, spark plugs and ignition wires.

Got one coil pack removed and now removing the second there is a really rusty and somewhat rounded off screw that I cannot remove.

They are normally an 8mm so I tried a 7mm and it fits but still rounds over it. 6mm will not even fit over the rounded head. I attempted a 1/4" which is BARELY bigger than a 6.5mm but it will not fit over either.

Any suggestions on getting this thing out? Coil pack must be changed.

Sorry for the blurry picture, its a very small space.

There's a couple things you can do. You can look for a bolt extraction set. They have ones with multiple sizes to properly remove the bolt. Shouldn't be too bad given it has a relatively low torque. Sears sells a craftsman set and I'm sure harbor freight has them too. Do not get a generic one size fits all extractor because that will not fit in the location you need it for

I've also found that craftsman has some universal bits that work with 12 pt, 6 pt and others as we'll to work for rounded bolts.

Lastly if u have a **** socket u don't care about, u could put the closest size on there with some jb weld. Let it cure overnight and it should come right out with the socket but the sockets garbage after

I hammered the hell out of a 6mm socket and was able to get the stud out.
