    You may end up having to drill them out and using the next thicker screw -- but try everything else before that. Depending on how small these are, a SMALL screw extractor might work -- but that means new screws too.

    Yeah, that's what I ended up doing. The thread parts were so corroded it would be almost impossible to get them out with a screwdriver.
