Default E61 4 wheel alignment problem

I have a 2008 E61 which is wearing rear tyres on the inside, I want to have the 4 wheel alignment done but I am having problems with the nearside rear camber adjusment which is seized solid. I can't heat the bolt as its through a rubber bush, I have drenched it in penetrating oil but so far its resisting that. If I break the adjuster bolt I will have to replace the complete arm which is around 180.00. anybody out there got any ideas. thanks Paneuro.

Have you resolved this issue? I'm having similar problem with my right rear tire negative camber. I blew out a tire already, multiple alignments (4 times), and now inner side of new tire is wearing out. I've been to two different alignment shops, and a BMW certified mechanic shop. My mechanic have mentioned taking mine the dealership that does "weighted" alignment, that I have yet to do. He said there were no issues with suspension. But the problem seems to keep coming back.
