Are the fuel line threaded in or does it look like they hav a plastic clip or does it have flare end at the end.Because the flared ends and the plastic clips requirer a speacial tool that you can get at the local parts store , if they thread in its easier to use the flare wrenches to keep from rounding the nuts. The screws that you are talking about are those for the rotors or are you talking about the caliper bolts.

On the caliper bolts - make sure you are turning them in the right direction - we have all done that - I use a socket wrench with allen head for my vehicle and tap it with a rubber hammer.
