Default Anyone have a good way to take off a stripped nut?

I need to take the horn off of the mount in the grill, but the nut is really striped. Any ideas?

Can't picture the horn assembly in my head right now, but if you are not reusing the horn you could probably just destroy that to get to it. Otherwise you can get one of the drill bits that pull out stripped screws. I have never had much luck with them, but maybe you will.

you can weld a larger nut to it, you can cut it off and replace teh bolt or stud, there are lots of tools to remove nuts, or you can try a nut splitter

Cut it in half with a grinder. Hit it with a hammer.
