I am changing front brake pads on my truck and usualy is a pretty easy job but of course this time one of the bolts that holds the caliper on the rotor. The allen head screw, is stripped how do I get it off the easiest way?

The easy way is with a socket.

If it is stripped, that is, spinning and not coming out, you will have to apply pressure to remove it and use an oversize bolt.

If the head is stripped, then use a pair of vise grips and replace the bolt.

Can I take off the rubber piece that is covering bolt head to be able to get vise grips around head?
