If nothing surrounding it can be damaged, and you can get in there.A plumbers type propane torch or similar, works well. Heat all around the outside (female part) to expand it. Try not to heat the bolt, keep it cool as you can (contracted).

Penetrating oil may work too, if heat will not work

Can't leave this one out. Turn the bolt the correct direction!
