I'll just repeat myself that the besides burning out the locktite expanding the threaded hole while at the same time you contract the fastner in the hole is the best method to remove bolts that are being held in by more than thread locker.

Many of us have removed enough non corroded fastners that are using thread lock to know that even the best thread locker is not enough to keep nuts, studs and bolts from coming off without the use of extreme heat.
