If it doesn't come out easily, hit it with a torch. The heat will make that **** crumble like chalk.

I am surprised the jb weld holds up to the heat. i'd say it come off pretty easy if you heat up the car and turn it with a wrench assuming it is still on the car.

It will actually work, unless it is threaded in.
