Installing Access lite rider cover

It's my understanding the the torex # 30 bolts in rail, need to be removed for the new hardware. I tried loosing the bolts got all but two and of course stripped the heads. What now ?? Any simple Idears??

probably to late but I would say you could start with a left hand drill bit if that doesn't bring it out you already have a hole to use with an easy out.Good luck.

FYI
easy out stripped the head even more....solf alummium.. I slotted what was left to the head and use a small chisel, and tap it with a hammer counter clockwise and both of them came out.. But thanks for the input!!

Same thing happened to me. Some of the bolts were easy to break free with just a ratchet, others were completely over-torqued and I couldn't break the loose with a breaker bar. Inevitably I stripped 3 of them out pretty bad...so I drilled the heads off, and turned them out with pliers.

Install the Access lite rider last night with the help of my wife holding the rails. You certainly need a extra hand in the install. It went together without a hitch and looks great...
