Default Help! Stripped bolt

Hey guys, I was working on the driveshaft and while trying to remove one of the 12mm 12 point bolts on the flange, it became stripped. Now I'm frustrated that 1 bolt is holding me back from finishing the job. Any suggestions on how to remove the bolt?

Extractor set if you can get it, vice grips may work

Some super epoxy or jbweld in the socket should do it. You may not be able to recover the socket though. Just be sure to clean the bolt good with some brake cleaner.

I'm surprised you stripped one.

Some super epoxy (2 part epoxy) or jbweld in the socket should do it. You may not be able to recover the socket though. Just be sure to clean the bolt good with some brake cleaner.
