By screwed it up, im assuming you rounded off one of the bolts? Do you have access to a small torch? Like a mapp gas torch used for soldering? If so, try heating up the flange where the bolts go into, and any bolts that you may have damaged the heads on, try hammering on a socket smaller in diameter. If this doesnt work, then your going to need access to an oxygen-acetylene torch, and a good pair of visegrip locking pliers. Once you get the 4 bolts out, your going to have a whole entire other battle trying to change the u-joints. If your tackling this job, then I assume your going the hammer and socket routine for changing the u-joint. Keep in mind the retaining rings are probally all rusted, and wont come out easy.
