try an easy out or left handed drill or you could try but be bloody careful nipping the screw heads in a vice and twist to release

soak in wd40 then put them in a wooden vice or work mate and use a impact driver on them ,dont worry about damaging the heads if they have started to strip replace with socket head bolts

just be ultra carefull with the diaphams they cost a fortune to replace

cheers miffa
