React-Native-Webview Android managed build fails

I get this error
“The Android Gradle plugin supports only kotlin-android-extensions Gradle plugin version 1.6.20 and higher.
The following dependencies do not satisfy the required version:
project ‘:react-native-webview’ → org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-gradle-plugin:1.6.0”

I have searched around and found a couple of fixes but the error is always the same
Its like it ignores the local file changes and gets the external module
This is what I tried
a. in node_modules\react-native-webview\android\
fixing the ReactNativeWebView_kotlinVersion=1.6.0 to

b. In node_modules\react-native-webview\android\build.gradle
I modified to fix the plugin version “kotlin-gradle-plugin:1.6.21”
buildscript {

dependencies {

This has happened since I upgraded Expo to v48
Im using eas-cli 3.10.2
