Replacing windscreen corner trim

Finally found the part & got it ordered, failed miserably to undo the screw/bolt holding it in. Any suggestions on how to get it out, small screw extractor?

make a cut on the bolt head with dremel like tool with smallest cutting disk for flat screwdriver? or drill it out, and later worry how to remove rest, and then use new bolt?

I had same issue.

When i tried drilling, it moved too much and i i damaged the scuttle panel plastic.

Dremel is better option if you have one.

In the end i removed the entire panel and removed from underside with mole grips. ( I needed the whole thing off anyway)

Can i ask what new ones cost as I've never replaced them.

Good plan I'll try the Dremel approach, failing that how easy or not was it to tale the whole panel off?

The corner trim cost £15.36 + nominal postage from Alfa workshop. I'll try to add a link below, but never had much luck as yet:
Alfa Romeo 159 Windscreen

It worked! :-)
