PropShaft bolt spinning at Handbrake Drum

So I went to remove the rear prop shaft and found that a bolt connecting it to the handbrake drum would spin like it was stripped. Is there a workaround to this or am I just retarded?

It means the head of the bolt is rounded inside the drum. This happened to me a few times. I seem to recall that copious use of heat and then prying behind the driveshaft flange (to put tensile load on the underside of the bolt head) allowed me to get the nut off without resorting to extreme measures. Failing that, you could always use cutting discs, dremel, or oxy acetylene to solve the problem.

Dee-stroy the nut. I drilled and chiseled last time this happened. Now instead of just taking off the prop shaft, you get to redo the hand brake and the output flange seal! Yay!

Thanks for the tips and levity. . I also stripped a knuckle to hub bolt last night on the LR3 so it was just another typical Rover day.

First time taking this apart so I didnt know what to expect. I have new shoes for the brake; guess Ill order new bolts and a complete in/output seal kit with flanges for the TCase since its leakin. STC3433 an STC3432
