Screws on Fuel Rail Stuck

I bought an '05 636 that I'm using as a project/flip bike. I'm going to clean the injectors, but the two middle screws on the fuel rail aren't budging and I can feel them wanting to strip. With limited space, due to the angle, what would y'all recommend? I'm just about to dremel the head and use a flathead screwdriver, but I'd rather that be my last resort since so much wiring is in that area.

Pictures for reference.

Edit: Sorry for the double circles, the pictures were way bigger when I edited them, so it was necessary.

U sure u got the correct sized screwdriver? Having the right size will help bigtime.

Try going a bit bigger.

I made more room by removing the coolant reservoir and the screwdriver I'm using fits perfectly. Even using liquid wrench and that screwdriver, I still can't get it going. Ugh.

If you have room, sometimes you can unstick screws by seating the screwdriver in the screw, and tapping on the end of the screwdriver with a hammer. A manual impact driver might work as well.

Try a little valve lapping compound on the screwdriver tip. Make sure its the correct size. Also Airkroil is the best penetrating oil out there.

Sharpen a punch to a very sharp tip on a,gribder wheel and tap it loose with a light ball pein. But be careful. Try the 1st suggestion first

9 sec 636 in the making!!

Froze bolts the same way for my carbs and it worked like a charm. Then if space provides use small hex bolt for replacement.
