What normally happens the cap has been left off so its rusted.

You need a long hex that you drive with a socket and bang it in with a hammer then get a knuckle bar on it, if this rings off then you need a long reach torx or triple square and hammer this home, this'll more than likely get it and you have to replace the bolt.

Top tip........... grease the bolt heads and put the plug caps (bungs) back on.
