it's one of those rubber thing's that goes over a small bar of metal to hold it in place... i dont really know how to explain it much better then that, i can't un-bolt it cause there's not enough room, and i cant seem to get enough leverage to get it to slip out of it

LOL - THOSE ARE A BITCH!



You're either going to have to try really hard to get the bolts out in a true mechanical manner, or you're going to have to go barbarian style and burn it off with a torch, then just weld them back on when you're ready to reinstall.
