First time in a few years...

What the best way to get the stripped bleeder valve out???
Rear wheel on my 07 Ranger, took a vice grip to it after I rounded it down and now I think I'll hammer a smaller socket on to it and try getting it off tomorrow.
Thanks,

Get some heat. Heat up the bleeder screw and then clamp your vice grip down on it while hot. Work it back and forth (thats what she said)
Also take some WD-40 or penetrating grease and spray the living hell out of it.

Thread also moved to the right sub-forum.

I new I was on the wrong sub forum but had little time to correct it, ( heading out to see the Avengers before the storm hit) I break all the bleeder valves before I ask my wife if I can borrower her foot for a few minutes. That was the last one I attempted to crack open and of coarse I lost my composure.... I"ll take another stab at it Tuesday but I'm going to replace both bleeder valves. I noticed the front bleeder valves had covers on them, the backs didn't... I'll PB Blast it and but some heat to it...

Thanks,
