SO I ran into an issue this evening while I was replacing my third brake light. While I was trying to remove the 10mm nuts that hold the light on the trunk lid instead of the nut coming off one of the posts unscrewed from the light. Now I'm left with a post that I need to remove the nut from but can't because it just spins.

Any ideas how to get the nut off so I can install my new light? Thanks!

^^ This part was supposed to stay screwed into the light.

^^Here's the nut. As you can see, it's a tight squeeze.
