You could try soaking them, I don't think it would hurt anyway but yeh the hammer method, needed that on quite a few bolts on quite a few cars. I usually fit the right size bit into it's holder/socket and use an extension bar to hold then give the end a couple of good hard whacks, it seems to work well. You learn these things from driving older cars all the time lol
