Angry Help! Bolt won't come out of A Pillar!

Hey all. I need some help. My 04 Ram 3500 has an issue (well really I do) with the A Pillar bolt. I bought a 3 pod gauge pillar gauge cluster to replace the stock grab handle that was loose. I grabbed the 11 mm socket and all the bolt does is turn. I cut the plastic off to see what the issue was and... The bolt has a collar that is pressed into the A Pillar. This "collar" spins when I try to unbolt the a pillar. WTH? If ANYONE has a idea (short of cutting out the A Pillar) PLEASE send it to me!
