slimvulcanrider this is one of the very few times I will say to use a bigger hammer and more force. 9 X's out of 10, i won't even pull the hammer out of the drawer.

slimvulcanrider yes it can, but doubt it will work, when steel rusts into aluminum, it kind of welds the two metals together. Hit the Impact driver harder while gripping the impact driver with a steady CCW pressure. The screws will break loose.

If the screwdriver you are using has the steel blade/shaft extend the full length of the handle, you can give it a good tap or three with a hammer to try to break the thread lock on the screws so they can be turned out. Kind of a poor man`s impact driver.

Don`t hammer on a plastic screwdriver handle though, as you will just break it.
