Just another stupid question?

I have a 92 YJ. Im trying to free up the windshield bolts. I heated em up a bit. And they started to spin I was like Yay I m home free. Now they keep spinnin' Is there a back on those or something. I start to feel stupid and then I realize that there prolly has been a million people before me with this problem. Any thing I can do besides drill and retaps. Thanks in advance. p.s. I highly endorse that PB breaks lube/penetrant its the balls.

I was just able to get up under the dash. There is a nut holding those bolts on. I will figure something out. Any advice would be cool though.

the best thing you can do is remove all the dash board bolts on ea. side pull the dash out about 1 1/2 in. one side at a time. Next use a box end wrench and reach up and hold the nut in place have someone remove the bolt from the outside.
how to replace nuts: place a short tappered pin -punch- drift pin
in the hole from the outside not too far about 1 1/2 in. slide the nut up the pin hold in place start bolt gently from the outside and hold with wrench
repeat 3 more times and your done. replace dash bolts on right side first,
on the left side there is a large vacumn breraker that may fall down a little bit, reach under the dash and push it back up about 1-2 in. and the dash will push back in place. replace dash bolts, done.
speakers can be replaced at this time but good luck on that one.
