Ok so today I was planning on cleaning and spraying my exhaust tip but for the lift of me I can not undo the bolt that holds it to the exhaust. I have the correct bit attached to my screwdriver but It will not budge.

Anyone got some ideas

If you have a gas torch / blow lamp. Perhaps application of heat and then a spray with WD40 or similar will shock it enough to free it.

Otherwise spray every day for a week with pentrating oil.
