In reply to a message from sparkster sent Thu 30 Aug 2007:

jam two nuts on one end and try turning it with a wrench to free it
up - alternatively, but a sacrificial nut on the end and beat
away…

These parts are often bent in crashes and left in place after the
repair - this makes them harder (but not impossible) to get out.

Put anti-sieze compound on them when you re-install.

Sparkster,
Sadly, there is no easy way. Please read Kirby’s book on the XJ-S. It
will tell you that:
a) you must beat the hell out of the lower fulcrum bolts
b) as a result of the beating, you must replace the lower fulcrum bolts
c) as a lump owner, you have it easy. Those of us with V12 engines in
our XJ-S’s have to raise the engine in order to gain sufficient
clearance to withdraw the bolts.
