Nope, never happened to me. Next time, after you get it off, make sure you position your body so that you have proper leverage and your keeping the ratchet flat on the bolt.

Good Luck!

It feels like it is starting to strip. I felt the rise in torque and went a bit beyond. Don't know, I will check it again next oil change.
