Help - Leak btwn stem and bonnet nut on shower handle


We have water leaking out from between the stem and bonnet nut on our hot water handle in the shower. We tried to replace the whole thing but the old seat is stuck in a stripped. We bought the tool (L shaped thing) to remove it but it will will not come out. If we leave the old one in and replace the stem it still leaks between the stem and bonnet nut.

Any Suggestions?

Also, What the heck does the Bonnet nut do?
