Kroil is one of the best, PB blaster comes in a few steps down the ladder from that, but is still really good.
I hear brake fluid is supposed to be good, but I never tried it, so I do not know for sure, however, you have that in your car, so you can grab an eye dropper full for free, and right now.

First things first.
Disconnect the plug high-tension wire.
Wedge the blade against the case with a 2x4 block or something similar.
You need to know which direction the nut tightens and loosens.
If unsure, look at the direction the blade turns. (Note: it'll turn in the direction of the cutting edges.)
Facing the blade with the nut closest to you, loosen the nut by turning it in the same direction that the blade turns.
Use the correct size socket. And unless you have arms like an orangatan, put a cheater on the ratchet.
Or you can do as suggested and use an impact wrench. Either electrical or mechanical. Either one should work.

If bolt is stripped sears has a nice set of extractors. Not sure how well they will do with something really stuck on and in a tuff location like that. They work best when you can get a real good grip and keep it all at a good right angle.

If you don't have either, buy one. You'll be sure to use it again.
