Hello, I am in the process of running wire for an amplifier & subwoofer install and in order for me to remove the passenger panel that holds the subwoofer. I have to unbolt the tailgate door anchor/latch/strike plate. I have no clue what it’s actually called, forgive my ignorance. I went to go ahead and unscrew those two bolts; but what should’ve been a simple job ended up not being simple at all. The two bolts are completely rusted in and refuse to come out. I used a manual impact driver but it does not seem to be budging. My last resort is to drill them out and replace the bolts but I want to try to stay away from that as much as I can. Regardless I would like to replace those bolts but am having trouble finding the actual name of the part so I can source the bolts. I may actually opt for hex head screws as well as I know those hold up better as far a being able to function through rust.
