    how do I get this screw out?!?!



    so while putting in my 2k9 body after it was freshly annodized, i manage to things up, i stripped the head of one of the screws. at first i was like hey i wont need to take this apart anytime soon. well of course i do. so i thought hey ill back it out with my extracter/easyout style bit.

    slowly i rotate the bit counter clockwise.next thing i notice its not grabbing.now its rounded out.
    what should i do?
    how do i get this out now?

    thankyou for any and all help,
    KNM.

    Basically drill the head off the bolt , if it's a #10 bolt a 3/16 drill should take the head off & leave a little stickin up to get the pliers on ( after the other bolt & part are removed ) , we don't have to tell ya to be careful of that new anno , do we ??

    I cut slits in all mine and use a flathead screw driver instead... Works awesome.

    Best thing I ever did was sell that body. Had same problems with screws so I cut them for a flathead as well.
