sorry for hi jacking the thread, OP. my posting just snowballed
Try a ball end wrench. Specifically one with the screwdriver type handle. These let you apply torque without having to be directly in line with the screw.
Something like this:
Bondhus 10603 1/16" Ball End Screwdriver. Available online
Blue Locktite is not that strong. It is to stop screws from vibrating out, not glue them in place. More probable is the screw was cross threaded when installed due to side pressure from the bolt latch.
The heat/freeze approach will only work if you have broken the chemical (Locktite) bond and it is the Locktite holding it in place.
Approximately 300+ degrees or soak the screw in acetone (if your finish will handle it) will release the Locktite..
