    had a simialar problem with the rear seat belt buckles the teeth were sheered off completely and you cudnt get any torx bits or allen keys or anything on it. To make it worse it was hardened steel bolt lol. In the end we smashed a socket over the top or it that was just slightly smaller than the bolt.

    If its the bumper screws, remove the wheel, drill the head off and unhook the bumper from it, once done you can slide the boogered screw and its retaining nut out and toddle to vx to buy new ones
