Model and year?

The connector is secured by a screw (bolt) with a head that shears off when fitted.

To remove the headless bolt it has to be drilled out.

The official way is to insert a sleeve into the connector hole with a smaller diameter hole in the centre to guide a drill bit.

Maybe you could improvise with a bunch of washers. From memory you need an M6 drill bit to remove the top.
