Cycles of heat and penetrating oil often works on some pretty stubborn parts. You can use a small torch, or a big soldering iron, to heat the fastener, then immediately squirt a bit of oil on it, let it cool a few moments and start the cycle again. Repeat the cycle several times, ending with a liberal dose of oil, and let it set overnight. In the morning (if you have plenty of Karma stored up, and the stars are in the proper alignment) a few taps with the impact driver might get some results.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
