If you havent rounded out the splines in the head get a hand held impact tool and a hammer to loosen them. Use plenty of PB Blaster penetrant.
If you have rounded them out then you have a choice of drilling them out or welding a nut to the head and using a wrench to remove them.
Good Luck

^^^This.
The impact driver tool is worth its weight in gold and pays for itself in the first use.
I bought mine to remove the screws for the bar ends on our motorcycles.

The top part of the hinge has the nuts tack welded to the inside of the frame.

However the lower part of the hinge, thanks to the professional morons at the Chrysler engineering department, are bolted the nut is not welded to the body. In order to get to them, you either have to take the entire dash out of the machine, OR, be an extreme contortionist to be able to get your paw all the way up inside there to get a wrench on them.

Mine were rusted bad enough that I had to use a pair of needle nosed vice grips on them to get the bolts out. It was a long drawn out process. I replaced with stainless steel hardware and lots of never seize.
