Question about Honda Accord
Good evening, unfortunately this is something we run into all the time. There are a couple ways to go about it, first you can try soaking it every hour for a day with wd40 or something similar. You can also get a punch (or chisel) and sharply hit the metal bushing that is around the bolt to hopefully break it free from the rust that is holding the bolt to the bushing. Last effort is apply heat to the bolt as to not heat up the rubber around the bushing then put the nut back on the end til you even up with the threads and start tapping on it while turning. One of those top few steps is usually successful when we do them at the shop. Glad to help, and any more questions please ask.

The difficulty is by design. Instead of being cylindrical, that bolt has a slight coning to it. It fits into the hole and practically locks.
There is a tool specifically designed for its removal. IT goes by names like 'Ball joint removal tool' and 'Pickle Fork' (I swear). It looks like a tuning fork with wedge shaped tines. The fork straddles the top of the bolt and you pound the base with a hammer. The wedge shape separates the two pieces
Relatively cheap at auto parts stores
