Default K&N CAI Install Issue

I'm trying to install a K&N CAI and I'm at the step where you have to install the saddle bracket and mount to the bracket on the engine. Unfortunately, I cannot loosen the bottom factory bolt to attach the spacer then the mount/saddle bracket to. Is there a trick or a tool besides a socket wrench?

I'm not very mechanically inclined - I'm just normally pretty good at following directions . Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Did you spray it with wd-40? that's what i always do, and if that doesnt work get a longer wrench and smack it with the palm of your hand to break it loose.

Took a couple applications of WD40 but it finally broke.

Thank you for your response!
