The only trick I know is to coat the bolts with coppergrease - and check yearly.
They get the worst of the road spray, then sieze.
Sometimes bolt croppers are the only way - then replace the mountings.
Try penetrating oil for several days ( I presume you're home now), and apply a self-grip wrench while using a good socket set on the other. If it snaps - job done, get a replacement.
Paint your spare steel rim with a rustproofing sealant - or it will soon rust around the tyre - causing a flat as well.
I hope this solves your problems - now and in the future. If it does, Please rate as Fixya, Thank you.

2).Look under the trunk section at the bottom to first find the tire.
3).lift up the truck with the jack then get the spare tire underneath.
4).Use the socket wrench to unscrew the bolt's (turn left to loosen turn right to tighten).
5).Take out the bad tire and replace it with the spare.
6).Place the bolts back in place.
7).Lower the car back down .
8).Through the bad tire and your tools back in the trunk.

(Note - Do not touch the engine or try to operate the car while doing this).

There are 2 rods located under the carpet behind the passenger rear seat and a jack crank handle located inside the hatch on the drivers side near the tailgate. Open the rear door. At the top of the bumper (normally covered by the rear door) is a small hole. Insert the assembly into the hole until you have it engaged with the slot inside. Crank counter clockwise until your spare is on the ground. Once on the ground, remove the spare tire retainer, pulll the tire out and that should be it.
