The exhaust system must be removed to remove the bolt, unless you cut the head of the bolt off! Have seen many with the bolt up-side down, BUT I wouldn't do that myself. Try spraying a rust lube like wd-40 on the bolts where they go thru the exhaust pipes. Make sure to use new bolts with anti-sieze compound.
