Last time I did this, we tried drilling it and using a bolt extractor, the extractor snapped.

I was short on tools. so we cut around the bolt with a holesaw and then when we tried to remove the nut with a set of vicegrips and the head sheared off.

So we reinstalled without the set screw.

Another is to grind around it with a zip wheel and an angle grinder.

Not sure if anyone has some less extreme measures, torch etc... but this is what we had to do with the tools we had.

I did the same thing using a chisel and a 3lb. German Mallet. It was very therapeutic.

if it's not already too mangled try a small chisel and hammer and try turning it out that way. Had to do that a couple of times before, usually werks, if not see above response^
