Meeni, I used an 8mm box wrench and used a bigger box wrench to get more leverage as mentioned in the original post. The bolt was tight, but after a few attempts it cracked loose. After loosened, I used a 1/4" drive 8mm socket and a combination of 12" wobble extension and swivel to back the bolt all the way out. If you are still having problems, you might spray on some penetrating oil and let sit for several hours. Worst case you may need to get a 1/4" drive torx socket. I have a 3/8" drive torx socket set, but the diameter of the socket was too large and couldn't get the socket straight on the bolt.
