Hey guys, new here. I'm looking all over for help. I did 2 stupid mistakes while changing my rear breaks on my Peugeot 307.

First: when I was removing the break caliper torx bolt, I didn't know it was going to be on so tight. Almost striped it. I have no idea on how to remove. Seen some people mention WD40 and whatnot, I'll give that a try, any other advices?

Second: I removed the caliper (the sliding part) and when I went to put the rigid line back, I cross thread it. I didn't see until I realized it was leaking and I couldn't get it in any tighter. When I went to remove it, I stripped the threads. Now I can't get it off. Any ideas on what to do? Replace the caliper and line or is there a solution here?

Hi! Yes, I have watched this video way back then, but I doesn't explain much in regards to the problems I'm having.
