Easy way to get the bolts out of the windshied hings?

When I go to loosin them off, they pop then just spin. I know I have popped the nut on the back side loose. Any easy way of getting them out with out having to drill and re-tap? I have to put new windshield hinges on my yj in a bad way!

I am going to guess it is a YJ by the looks of his last sentence.

I have not found a good way to get those thing out other than drilling them out and replacing the bolts. Sorry, I can't help you much.

even though its on a tj....what i did was instead of removing the hinge assy, i popped the pins that hold the lower half of the hinge and the windshield together..i thought about removing em all together...then i thought about the fact that i hate pulling torx headed bolts...a 5 lb sledge and a brass punch was all it took to remove the pins in about 10 mins
