I second the leave the bolt alone. I almost never loosen either cam when doing zetec timing. Just make sure that when you slip the belt on that all the slack is in the tensioner side. I'm pretty sure the vct should be where it needs to be without oil pressure applied to it. If you must take the bolt out try a extractor or weld a bolt onto it that has a regular 6 point head.
