^^^ Grinding until you see round circle is necessary to remove ALL of the bolt head...

If you still see "hex" in the grinding area some head remains...

(No more side notes on aircraft, gets too confusing for ya - (Grumpy knows his t on that...)

As to worries about removing the stub, once tension is off removal is generally MUCH easier - if locktite was used, a little heat to melt it could be applied - being careful of rubber nearby of course...
