That one of the two you linked... I would suggest going to sears and getting a craftsman one but that one might work

Wheres the screw?

I can't recall ever coming across a screw I couldnt get out with a drill. Just use the right size bit and apply more pressure so it cant slip out.

The second one. Also, you could just try tapping the screw with a hammer first. It will loosen the threads usually. Just put the regular screwdriver in the screw and hit it with hammer. It will jar the threads enough that it will possibly loosen. The impact driver just has a spring that helps turn as you tap with a hammer. It's a good tool to have around anyway.

Will the kit destroy the bolts which requires me to buy new bolts?

Maybe if you were to tell us what kind of bolt, holding what together, we might be able to save you a lot of grief.
Is it a screw or a bolt?
Is the head stripped or is it just real tight/corroded?
Is it steel in aluminum?
Stainless in stainless?
Why is buying a new bolt a problem? If it's stuck and you have no choice but to destroy it, let the fun begin.
If it's something hard to replace or hard to get at it (like down in a recess) then other methods might be used.
Have you tried soaking it with some type of penetrating oil?
Have you tried heat?

Give us more to go on so we can help you out.

Fixed. It was the right clutch housing cover on the TMAX. The bolt out was able to grab onto the outside edge of the screw head. I wonder why the manufacture didn't use a traditional bolt in that application???

Anytime. I was about to play some modern warfare, but wanted to get out of the house before the rain came.
