    you probably stripped it already. try using vise grips and a vise to hold it

      If it's not stripped, get a longer handled allen wrench and try again. If it is stripped, you could try getting a clamp and clamping it down then using that to turn it.

            Put the hex wrench in it and give it a good smack with a hammer and it should come loose. That usually works for me.

                i got it out wtih a 5' vise grip by craftsman with that gripping handles
                the old one was all rusted and corodded, and the car feels a tad bit better with idle and starting up. next project is to redo ground wires with some 4guage wires

                  Try a impact driver.

                      good you got it out. but for anyone else another tip i got from a mechanic is to just break off the end of the rotor the just use some vise grips.

                        i had an old motorcycle, every bolt i took out was rusted in, and i used a dremel to cut slots in them all, the vibration helped i'm sure, and then i used a screwdriver to get them out

                                I didn't get to it last night, so it looks like it will have to wait for tomorrow.
