Question about Cars & Trucks
I have discovered these questions are from all over the world! Hope this helps.
WD40 is not a penetrating oil, and it isnot getting into the space between the screw and the hole it is screwed in to.
One of the best penetrating oils is PB blaster. That comes in a can with red, yellow, white and black colors.
However, even that will not get into the hole until you give it some space by loosening the screw.
Here are two or three ways to help yourself.
Get a hammer and beat the metal near the screw you want to loosen.
You might hit it 5 - 10 times, and try the screw, then 5-10 times more, etc.
(Also, get what is called an impact socket. These are extra heavy duty for impact wrenches, and are not chrome plated.)
What you are trying to do is set up a vibration that will jar the screw loose.
DO NOT hit the screw itself, or bend the metal near to screw.
You might also heat the metal near the screw with a propane torch to expand it. Do not heat the screw.
Last, but not least.
You are only trying to get the screw it to turn about 1/4 of a turn.
That is all.
Then squirt it with penetrant, and turn in back tight. Work the screw back and forth several times 1/4 of a turn.
After about 10 times, then try to loosen it 1/2 a turn. Continue not forcing it.

You need heat . dont heat near the rubber, but to the left of that on the outside of the casing. the heat will transfer thru the metal. dont break the bolts off
