I know this soubds lame but I tried replacing my rear anti roll bar link today, and I couldn't unscrew the old one It turns but it doesn't unscrew, I couldn't find a nut on the other side of the bolt and have no idea why it won't come off! Please help!

you should find it has a 5mm allen key hex in the end but these do round out,you could try a pair of vice grips on the part that is spinning

as said, they seize, good news is they are only made of plastic, so easy to saw off, or melt, to get a beefy pair of mole grips on what remains, and then undo with a spanner.

I always find an angle grinder is a marvellously effective tool for removing these....Less than 20% success rate at unbolting them
