ErikD957 Thanks guys. I've already tried using the vice grips, but I'm pretty sure the screw is rusted on to the "sheath" it's screwed into. The heads have been cut off with a sawzall, so it's sounding like I'm gonna be buying a drill bit to go through it. Thanks so much for your input! I didn't think swapping out fender flares was going to be such a production!!!

mikeym grab ahold of the studs that are left with a pair of vise grips, then have a friend or someone use a hack saw or sawzall, shouldnt take much, just be careful the sawzall operator doesnt let it skip against the fender

When I had the oil changed, my mechanic/tech sawed off the screw heads and washers that wouldn't come off. Now I'm left with remnants of the mounting screws from the original flares that are preventing me from mounting my new ones because they use the same holes in the fender!

Any advice on how to remove what's left of the old screws??? Any help is greatly appreciated!!!
If the heads are left on them and try are just spinning grab a good set of pliers and hold on to the clip the screw is in and try that if the head is gone used the same method except you will need to drill them out.
