I'm trying to remove the Eolys additive container on my Cooper D from 2008 and I can't get the bolt that holds it off, it's just spinning.

I was aware that it can be a hassle to get this thing off, for example like in the video below. I've read in this forum that some people have hacksawed the bolt off (Fuel additive eolys 176) but I can't seem to get enough gap to get a hacksaw blade in there...

Does anyone else have any tricks to share how to get it off?

I hacksawed the bolt but the upper part is still in place - does anyone have any clever ideas how to get it out so I can put a new (longer) bolt in?

I think it is stuck in the nut and when trying to push it up nothing happens. I don’t know if drilling it will be possible.
