need help, crosspin bolt head rounded off

got an 8.8 axle with 4.10s and a limited slip today, old brakes are rusty bad, dont care about them because i already have rear disks, problem i have now is that the head of the crosspin bolt is rounded off, anybody know how to get it off, not a lot of room to get anything in there

pic of the bolt? i've heard from other people that if you break the head off the bolt you are straight up done. not sure about it being rounded off.

And it definitely sucks there is like no room in there. Had problem with that when I pulled the disk backing plates from an expo.

Maybe some needle nose vise grips. I don't remember rounding it off when I took it out. But I did put a a lot of locktite on it.

well good news is that i got the bolt out, beat a 7.5mm socket onto an 8 mm bolt head and it came out, thankfully.
