Yes aerokroil does work we use it at work in aircraft maintenance.Just let it sit for a few hours for best results if you can.

Sometimes any kind of penetrating oil might not be enough. I've had screws I've soaked for days but still could not move with normal screwdriver. They were so corroded they were practically welded to base metal.

For these difficult screws, I've had a fair amount of luck using an inexpensive hand-held impact driver. Just place the correct bit in head, check to see that direction of force is correct, and give it a couple of wacks.
