Got dot on the drive jacked up trying to replace the brake pads... but there are two bolts holding the caliper onto the car... the top bolt has come undone but the bottom one will not move... it has been slightly rounded off so a 13mm will no longer go on without slipping.. Have tried using a half inch... no luck and then using a 12mm but that still didnt work... Theres no room to fit any type of pliers of what have you in there so what can we do?!

Thanks for just confirming what an imbecile you are. Some people may not have known.

if you have a blow torch handy heat the nut (protecting other parts of the break) this will help loosen the nut, also try to get a longer handle (bit of strong piping) gives you more leverage

+1, heating the area will expand the material and help "crack" the sealed bolt, also plenty of wd40 in there

using a blow torch will melt the rubber seals in the brake cylinder .
so think about it first!
(speaking from first hand exp)
