Liquid wrench should loosen it right up

Open end wrench on the mount & allen in the top ?

Tried my friend the allen keeps wanting too slip also tried clamping the mount in a vice but no joy allen wants to slip out again might try heating it up later

If the above mentioned method with the wrench & allen didn't work then you're screwed. The mount is steel and your brake arm is aluminum. Your brakes will be melted if you try to heat it up. Aluminum melts at a much lower temp than steel. And btw those mounts are garbage. I had em on my mutiny and hated them. The fit style is better but I'd prefer welded overall


I'm on the vital legit list!

Sounds stripped to me.
