Taking my doors apart required the heat wrench on nearly every clutch head I came across. It was a pain, but it never failed to work

Not a clutch head, but could work in other situations. Had a set of locking lug nuts without a key, and nothing else worked so I mig welded 6 tacks around it to give a socket something to bite on to. Worked great and got all 4 off a couple other shops had failed to get off.

I have a tool that I bought when I had a motorcycle that works pretty good on stuck bolts or screws. You postion it on the offending screw, give it a slight twist to the left, then hit it with a hammer. The hit keeps the bit in the screw and gives it a slight turn to the left. Sometimes it takes a few strikes to get it out, and the head of the screw must be able to hold the bit, so I have to be sure to use it before I have stripped it out. Do not remember what it is called, but it works.

I found a set of clutch head bits for my hand impact screwdriver and it's never failed me yet. Just get a bigger hammer. I also have the 3/8" drive ones GeneBrink posted, they work great. I take a pick and clean them out real good first. It is worth the time to me to not mess it up when trying because once it slips once it gets considerably harder.

I welded a bit to my pneumatic hammer with a screw driver handle welded to the side. This lets me vibrate the rust out and turn the bit with the screwdriver handle at the same time. I actually made one for phillips and straight bits also.

I made one of those and it works like a champ. I just ground the end of the hammer tool bit into a 3/8" square so that I could use the 3/8" drive clutch head bits on it.
The beauty is that this tool does not apply any torque on the fastener. It only applies the hammering force to loosen up the rust. The torque to turn the fastener is applied by your hand on the welded-on handle on the tool bit.
