Hey this isn't really a problem but I want to switch the side the macroline is coming out, I have to remove this plug should I just try to torque it out or is there an easier way. Just wondering and don't want to mess anything up.

Back it out with a Allen Bit in an Electric Drill

A drill probably won't have the torque required, just go at it with the right size allen key.

Just use the right sized allen key and turn it counter-clockwise.

Just keep torqueing at it, might want to add a little lube...sometimes it works.

you can always add a bit of heat, it will melt the loctite and make it easier to remove, but get parent supervision on this, and I would only do it if you are familiar with the outcomes and are experienced with metal.

Don't use heat on it, you'll likely ruin the anno. If it's really stuck in there, do this:

1 - use an oring pick or something thin and pointy to scrape all that gunk out from around the screw.

2 - Get a can of WD-40, and spray the crap out of it three times, letting it sit for like an hour between each go

3 - Get the correct size allen key, you don't want to use a ball-end for this, you want the flat end

4- press the allen key into the slot, and grip the long end with a pair of pliers, length-ways ( so that the jaws of the pliers are running along the length of the allen key, not across it)

5 - Now twist the bitch out.

Let me know how you go with this :)

uh guys, the way that planet eclipse themselves recommends to do it is to take a hair dryer, heat it for 5 minutes then break loose with an allen key.

No heat from a hair dryer will weaken the anno.

The loctite on there is needs heat to be removed, good luck getting it out without it.

What kinda drill have you used? Anyway OP you wouldn't need a drill anyway. Just some elbow greese. Posts above answered your question pretty well.
