Yes the nutserts are notorious for spinning...
You'll either have to cot them or try to pry the skid while loosening the bolt.
Here's a thread about replacing them

Prying did not help. A Facebook friend told me how he has done it and it worked well for removal. A chisel pounded between the frame and skid. Now to follow your link for replacement.
Thanks for your help.
