adhesive remover?

I was replacing the clutch cover on a friends bike and came to realise that there is a bolt on the inside that hold the clutch cable in from the top of the housing that I think has had threadlock put on it. I've attempted to use a torque wrench to loosen it but to no avail. It has a glazed like substance on it from what I can tell, does anyone have suggestions on what I could use to possibly put on this bolt? I normally would use acetone (use that on a lot of things) but I don't want to damage anything possibly with that chemical (it eats up plastic, rubber and such).

Thanks in advance.

Bit hard to do, as the clutch cable is still attached to the housing, and i'm having to hold it by hand. sorry I should have mentioned that! the bolt is on the inside of the housing.

I haven't yet, I was a little hesitant to put chemicals in that area as I didn't want to melt any wires or rubber. I will try that tonight and see what happens.

Heat. Use a heat gun (not a hairdryer) get it as hot as needed (but no hotter) and the threadlocker will release.
Heat it a little, then try to remove, repeat until it lets go. That way you don't overheat anything.
