    Problems removing seats HELP!

    While trying to remove my front seats today I have managed to round off both bolts on the rear off the seats. Anyone got any ideas on how I can get them out, without resorting to a drill.

    The bolts are completely rounded after trying to hard.

    Any help is much appreciated as I need these seats out ASAP.


    Thanks Bob
