If what you are saying is that you want advice on how to remove the windshield bracket bolts, then I would say you want to spray them liberally with PB Blast, tapping them lightly afterwards with a rubber mallet to work it in a bit. Do that several time over the course of a morning and then use the correct size Torx wrench to remove the bolts. If you need to replace those bolts on re-install, I would imagine Quadratec online has them.

im having this problem as well.

I tried heating mine up. It losens them but there is a nut on the back. A couple of cool cats here have told me to take the dash apart and pull it out a couple inches to get to the nuts but I havent had a chance to do so. I just found a set of stainless replacements on Jeepglass .com. They are thirty two clams after shipping. Thats prolly what Im gonna go with. As soon as I get a second.....
