Default This bolt is stripped. Help

The main seatbelt bolt to my backseat is stripped. I ripped the wall and what not down and out to turn back into a trunk car.

How the hell can I get this out?

In my experience, easy outs do not work on seat belt bolts.

Use PB Blaster penetrating oil on the threads of the bolt. soak it for about 20 minutes. Spray the bottom side of the bolt also.
{PB Blaster is better than WD-40 against rust}

Then buy the correct size 1/2" drive impact Torx from NAPA (about $4) {probably T55} and beat it in with a 3lb sledgehammer. then use a 1/2" drive Breaker bar to loosen the bolt.

If the head breaks off the bolt, you'll have to remove the rest and most likely use a new bolt and nut since the nut built into the floor pan will not be useable by the time you have the bolt out. {floor pan nuts tend to spin/break from the floor or just get stripped out in situations like this}

Lisle LIS19250 Bolt Nut Stud Remover Set

This goes on the outside and may work as well. I would also do like Sonic said and get some PB blaster. It is amazing stuff compared to WD!
You could also try heating it with a torch.

IT might be worth a shot to grab the outer rim of the bolt with a big vice grip and try to break it free with that

just spray the PB blaster around the seat belt bolt hole.. it will work it's way to where it needs to be.

side note,
why does that bolt need to come out? it looks like it just holds the seat belts... and I thought you were going from walled to seated, if so, you'll need the seat belts.

Option 1:

get angle grinder
grind slot in top of bolt
get air hammer/chisel
use flat chisel attachment to break it loose

if the head is big enough, you can grind a groove on only one side of it.

Option 2:
get new correct size heave duty torx socket
get big fuskin hammer and pound it into the bolt
get air impact to loosen it up
if it wont move with the impact, get big ass breaker bar
do not turn bolt head off

When I built the wall I cut the seatbelt off cause I could not get it out. Unbeknowest to me I would have another child and need the backseat. I have to get it out to install a whole new seatbelt it sucks.

Side note. Expando foam does not stick to deadener. I ripped it all of the metal surface of deadener. That was a huge timesaver. I had like 8 cans in theree
