unthread the nut as far as possible, then tighten it one full turn. Cut off the top with a hacksaw or dremel grinder and re-try. The bolts are cheap. A small jewelers file may help. Look for the damaged thread and remove the burr.

There are 3 bolts & a push stud with a plastic cover. The two bolts hidden by the trim are more easily accessible with bulb holders removed. I would also suggest something to catch any falling nuts would be a good idea.

WD-40 is nice for some situations, but not this particular one. I suggest you use something like Liquid Wrench. Apply, tap the nuts on each side with a metal punch, and a very small hammer. Not hard! You're just trying to bust any rust loose, and give the liquid wrench a chance to ease down in there.
How are you holding the bolt head on the other side? If these nuts are so corroded that this method won't free them, you make want to see if a 1/4 inch air ratchet wrench is available. The wrench is shaped in a 90 degree angle, so it should fit down in there. Have any mechanic friends? The bolts may break. It may come to this. Be sure the bolt head is held secure, so that no damage will come to the planer. If they, or it, breaks, you can just replace them. Make sure they're Grade 5 or above, bolts and nuts.
I've had to use a small propane torch to heat the nuts. The rust breaks free. I hope it doesn't come to this.

Had the same problem with my mower. Find a length of metal pipe that will fit over the handle of your socket wrench and it will give you more torque. The nut on mine would not even budge with a 12" extension bar, but when I put a 3ft steel pipe over the bar, it popped loose with very little effort. I also used a wood block to hold the blade tight

the screw has lock ty-et and yes its a pain we run in to this all the time just keep trying or heating it up helps most of the time we cut them out. you'll have to remove the deck. when we reinstall we put a bolt head type back in. good luck
