Stipped heads on Front Rotor Countersunk Philips Screw

Anyone have a slick removal technique? I can drill and chisel as well as the next guy, but if someone has a slick trick I'm all ears.

First some Kroil several times over 24 hours.PB Blaster or ATF second best choice.
Mig weld a bolt on it ?But you need to be very good at precision welding.Hold the bolt in a fixture in the correct position about 2mm away from the old phillips head.Do not forget to disconnect the battery!!
Left hand thread easy-out ?

You might be able to take a good hard punch and peck it out after the Kroil or PB Blaster.

+1 on impact screwdriver, that's how I got mine out. Replaced them with stainless ones from Lowe's and I put a little antisieze on the fir next time. I got the tool from O'Reilly auto parts for around $8-10.

Take a cold chisel and whack a slot all the way up to the outer circumference of the bolt. Then, put screwdriver in the slot, angle it and hit it with a hammer so it applies force in a counterclocwise direction.

use a dremel and cut a deep slot into the screw head and use a large regular screwdriver. also after cutting the slot into the head be sure to tap the screwdriver deeply into the new cut to ensure a good bite for the blade.

+5 On the impact driver. I've never used one before and wow! The screws came out with a few taps of the hammer, even the stripped ones! Why didn't I know about this tool already? Man that saves a lot of time and work! Thanks folks!
