    Hi, when I get a stuck screw on something, I use a pcb drill or Dremel, you can get a 1/64th thick cutting disk and cut a small grove into the head of the screw just big enough to get a fine flat blade screwdriver into. In your case, put clear Sellotape across the two grills and dock to stop metal bits getting in. As the screws are flush, you may well end up putting a grove into the metal band. If you don't fancy that, get a 1mm drill bit and drill down the middle of the screw head (slowly on low speed) till you see the head rotate/come loose. Once the bottom is removed, this should leave the screw shaft showing which you can unscrew with plyers.

    Just to be sure. I drill counter clockwise? Or try to drill INTO the screw?

    Hi, it wouldn't do any harm to try anticlockwise, you never know, it might unscrew. I meant clockwise, you use a drill bit slightly larger than the diameter of the screw thread, once you have drilled down the depth of the head, it will come off or start to rotate.
