Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion Discussion
After waiting to the given time (I think its around 8pm) quietly sneak out of the crawl space and see if hes sitting in the chair under the animal head (first story, by the fireplace), if he isn't, just wait an hour or two and check again.
If he is in the chair, sneak back into the crawl space and remove the bolts that fasten the head to the wall, after you've done that the head will fall, landing on him, resulting in his death, sneak out without the manservant seeing you and you've finished the mission.
thats how I remember doing it on my witch-hunter (thats a bowman/caster) character, although the details may be a bit fuzzy thats the general idea of the quest.
if you do what insomniac said and the bolts won't unfassen(which is what you were asking right?) then it may be a glitch and you should try loading your last save(not autosave). you can try cleaning the disk to
