new bolts from ford come in 4 pack and there 5 bucks each.

you DO NOT want to remove the bolt without using some sort of c clamp to hold the key, you could get hurt.

are you using a 6 point socket ?

if you use a 12 point socket you WILL round the head off!

you need a GOOD 6 point 13mm socket, perferably a 1/2" drive with a long ratchet.
