Had this happen before, i took a drill and just spun the bolt really fast until it came out of the tank(melts the plastic so the bolt and mount come out of the tank, dont worry there wont be a hole in the tank), then unscrewed the bolt from the other piece and put it back in the tank with epoxy, works like a charm.

Thanks for suggestion.

 

I may wait until I run out of options before I try your suggestion.  It makes sense but hopefully there are some less destructive options!
