Look up under the wheel-well, can you see the screw? Is there a nut on it, or is it a self-tapping screw? Use a pair of vice-grips on it, pull out as you are trying to unscrew. See if it helps.

Is this the one that is loose or the one that won't come loose? I didn't realize it mounted to the fire-wall?

The one that's lose is the one I wanna take out cause it won't tighten down or come an I'd rather have it just out of the way completely but the bolt closes to the driver side it tight an as secure soo with that bein said I kno it would be fine with jus that one bolt on an the clip thats in the back but I wanna get the passenger bolt jus incause I ever have to remove it again

Did you try using vice-grips to pull and unscrew at the same time?

Can you drill it, maybe a long drill bit?
