I never seem to get them to undo.
Its normally, force the battery out ,, take battery carrier off, then undo the bracket.

I think, aesthetically, car design is so interesting - the dashboards, the steering wheels, and the beauty of the mechanics. I don't know how any of it works, I don't want to know,

I find a 10" extension placed on the Bolt head, T'other end smacked with a lump hammer, tends to help.
1) It stretches the bolt. (honest)
2) It spreads the head making a tighter fit in the socket.
3) Also helps break any rust.
