OP, buy a spray can of penetrating oil and hit those 18mm bolts with a good spray especially if you live anywhere the car may have seen salt at some point.

Another secret for tough bolts is to tighten them slightly first. This breaks the bolt free and makes loosening easier. Sounds counterintuitive, yet works.
