    Grind some flat edges on the screw head so you can get some mole grips on it

    This happened to me. Same side. Same bolt. It all went tits up and we just couldn't get it back out, or back in. If you still can, try and get it back in and leave it.

    We eventually tried everything to no avail and had to end up grinding the whole nut off and out. The metal thing it goes into got dislodged and fell in the hole (you can't really get under it either) So there was nothing I could do..... Had to drive to my dads work and get him to weld a new bolt thread in it's place and then put the nut from the top downwards. Was a right **** up. Total mess.

    Get an old torx socket, or just a cheap one you don't mind being a once use.

    Know anyone with a welder? get them to weld the biggest torx socket that will fit into the screw, then undo it.

    Lash loads of WD40 or GT85 on the screw aswell, if its anything like a corsa B you can normally see the thread of the seat bolts under the car.

    Had the same problem with passenger seat. Every bolt on interior was fine, bar that one.

    In the end we hammered an old socket onto it. Couldn't even get a dremal onto the bolt, let alone an angle grinder.
