Hey guys and gals
Soooo I'm doing my rear brake pads for the first time on my baby, an 03. Can't get one of the bolts on the calipers off. I asked my neighbor to GENTLY break it loose annnnnd he strips it bald. So how do I get it out, is there a trick? Other bolt came out no problem. But even PB Blaster and a vise grip don't work. Now my baby's un-rideable :'( am I doing something wrong?

I attached a pic idk if you can see it
