    Thanks all. Yes after trying a regular Phillips head I dragged out the impact driver (the one you bAsh with a hammer)

    Iíve stripped the screw heads. Iíll try a bigger hammer but failing that yes Iíll try welding (but donít want to bugger my paint)

    Otherwise grind them off

    Yeah ďEasy outĒ LOL I love that name.

    A quick zap with a mig shouldn’t put enough heat into the area to wreck the paint.

    A lot of impact drivers come with a No 2 phillips head bit. What you want for that sized screw is a No 3 bit. Unless it is really flogged out the correct bit should still do the job.

    Also, did you make sure the impact driver was locked in the correct direction before hitting it with a hammer? You have to pre set them to go either left or right. Also, you should turn the impact driver slightly in the direction you want the screw to turn to give the driver a bit of preload, and then give it a hit with the hammer. I have used mine dozens (if not hundreds) of times - especially when working on motorbikes - and have never had an issue, even with the most stubborn of screws.
