Rusted screws

I had to remove some rusted in phillips head screws today on the Suzuki back bumper.
The screw driver just turned in the rusty head of the screws, so I decided to grind the heads off them so I could separate the parts.
After I had ground about 1mm off the head and they were hot both screws came loose.
One of them had just enough of the cross left so I could undo it with the screwdriver, the other I gripped with pliers and wound it out.
Getting them out was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be.
I'll try the same method on the rusted in bolts on my spare EH front apron on the weekend.

Or a hacksaw cut and a blade screwdriver works well

Not screws but if I have a broken bolt & need the EZI-OUT's I
use a drill bit with a left hand twist & 50% of the time it
winds out on its own without needing them. The heat from
drilling also helped in this case.
