I plan on going to pull a part to remove a used rear passenger wheel bearing. they do not allow torches there so i could heat the bolts. any suggestions on removing the 45 mm star bolts. i am sure they will all be very rusty, and difficult to loosen without stripping or snapping star head. any other tools you might recommend as well. dont have a slide hammer either, but that SHOULDNT be a big issue i hope. thanks in advance.

Penetrating oil like PB Blaster and a cordless impact gun. Also a breaker bar just in case you can't find a cordless impact.
