I've Had a pair of plumbing stillsons around the socket to try and turn it that way. In all my years of plumbing/fiddling about with mechanics I have had no where near as tight as what That thing is in there. It's been laughing at me all day. Taking it to a garage. It's there problem now! You won't be laughing soon you little mother f*****
