Take a pry bar and put it on the end of the threaded bolt and beat with hammer. Pb blaster is your friend.

This is where it often gets ugly, here is what i would do. With the bike on its side and the bolt as vertical as possible, find a way to use some gorilla tape to make a funnel that seals around the aluminum linkage. Fill it up with your favorite penetrating oil and keep it full for 24h. After that, the zip gun will drive it right out.

All good advices, another one I would add is to tap the bolt changing side of the bolt and alternating on which end you tap, the back and forth movement breaks the rust and this how I got lucky sometimes...
