If there is a nut behind it and you cant get to it I would recommend that you use a impact gun. As to this would not require force to hold the nut. If you still can not get it off try putting a screw driver back there to hold the nut in place then use the impact and it should come. Then if that doesn't work my friend is the Saw Zall

Mine did the same thing. It was a compression/pressed-in nut that is squeezed on both sides of the metal bracket from the factory. if you over-torque it, it just spins. my 13 y/o daughter did the same thing. I had to jam a flat blade screw drive into the nut to hold it in place while working the bolt. I had to order another header bar from the place i bought it because bestop didnt/wouldnt replace just the bracket. then once i received it swapped out the parts and shipped it back. what a PITA. Hind sight would be to drill a hole in the bracket allowing access to a nut from the under side. but there i go again thinking simple.

Hope this helps.
