Default Stripped torx 50 steering wheel bolt

I've been taking the dash out of my car to swap it for another in better condition and while trying to take the T50 steering wheel bolt off it has stripped. I've tried hammering a T55 in to it, I've tried hammering a allen key socket in to it but no luck. What are my options? Is there anyway to take the steering wheel off without taking that bolt off? I have another donor car with a steering wheel.

I need to have the car back together by Thursday for work

Are you sure you turned it the right way they are not normally that tight you could use a chisel on the edge of the bolt to force it round once started it should come out easily enough

They are not tight unless someone has been there before you and overtightened it

I wouldn't be surprised. There's a few screws missing from the dash

Cut a slot in it. Then go buy a correct replacement

I have a whole other donor 307. Mine is a 52 plate though and the donor car is a 07 plate so not sure how much is different

My dremel isn't working so I'm going to try an extractor bit. And I don't have a flat head socket big enough. If that doesn't work I might have to get a welder to weld an Allen key socket in it

Bolts are the same but 2007 cars are facelifted you may find wiring differences it could be a can of worms
