How to remove stripped nut in power head?

First purchase of a MK3 and I am stuck as I forgot a small square washer in the extruder body that would hold a small cover to house the IR sensor.  So I have to take a fair amount of this extruder head apart.  In doing so two of the nuts that hold the longer M14 screws just spin in the plastic house. (NO I DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO ANOTHER 3D PRINTER to PRINT ANOTHER COPY).

Any tips on how to back this screw out while trying to keep the nut from spinning in the plastic housing?  I've tried putting pressure on that nut with a metal screw driver while trying to back out the screw but it just spins.
