I thought it was just one. All being stuck does lead to thinking red loctite was used.All of the 6 screws are stuck. One was butchered by the owner(s) before me and I have butchered one with my efforts. Not going to butcher them all. I'm exercising patience because right now the bike can still be ridden. The moment I drill the head off I'm committed and will not be able to shift the bike without a trailer. Still pondering my next move.
It's not a big deal to pull the cover. When you're ready to commit time for the fix I'd suggest pulling it and following Therms advice. If that doesn't work then your only recourse is to drill as TT suggests.
Edit - as TT says, Left handed bit and press if available, that last ditch effort just may pull what remains of the fastener.
