The bolt in the front brake rotor is stuck , stripped and we cant get it out. we have tried easy outs and nothing, NOTHING is getting this dude out. It doesnt look like the brakes were changed in this car in years.

Is it a bolt or philips screw that retains the brake disc to the wheel bearing hub? You may now have to use a center punch to center a spot to drill out the bolt. Drill out the bolt and perhaps go to a hardware store and buy a tap and bolt. Many manufacturers don't even use a bolt to secure the disc to the wheel bearing hub due to the fact that when the road wheel is on and the lug nuts are tightened the disc is as secure as it would be if the securing screw was in place.
