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?

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

My only other thought is a long sharp chisel and a hammer, maybe you can knock the head off? Hate to see you ruin anything, Maybe if you can remove the whole reservoir, you can see what your dealing with?
