I've experienced this problem before on Asian cars. I applied a good dose of penetrating oil and let it sit over night. The following morning I reapplied another dose and had breakfast while it soaked a bit more. I then carefully slid a long hollow piece of pipe onto the ratchet and gently applied pressure.

The combination of a long soak with penetrating oil and a LONG cheater bar may solve the problem.

Liberty Firearms Training - After years of trying to regulate California criminals with a never ending stream of gun control laws they have still not given up with the belief that if they make something a crime that criminals will miraculously start obeying the law.
