I tried to heat up that whole area, impact won't rotate it and using a 3 LBS hammer isn't doing the job in the axial direction.
Just a thought: Is it possible that this pinch bolt is serrated? I'd see if I could get my eyes on a replacement part to double check. Have you tried to gently tap the bolt out from the threaded end? [I usually thread the nut on to protect the thread in case of a missed stroke.]

Good luck.

P.S. If your current luck keeps going, you might end up with all new parts on your car!
