Step 5: Fig.8 and fig.9 shows that only one screw would not unscrew, the sheetrock screw was stripped. The cordless screwdriver was just spinning the Phillips head and stripping the screw. The only way to remove the screw without damaging the wall was to saw the screw. Use a hand held hacksaw and pull up and push down until the screw is cut. This job is done and the next post shows it's time to repair the wall damages.
