you need to drill a small hole in the center and use an easy-out... go to your local hardware store they can help ya out with what to buy

whats a easy out ? something to basiclly take striped screws
A easyout looks like a reveresed twisted thread tap well .....kinda.Once you drill the small whole into the broken bolt to get it started you turn it to the LEFT and it pulls itself tight(with the reversed flutes) as you turn it and will hopefully cause the broke off bolt to back out with it.Try to use a center punch to get your drill started as well centered as you can. Hope this helps ya out.The main thing is to be very careful with the drill not to drill through one side or the other try to keep it as straight and through the center as possible!Good luck.:wink:

I also think there is locktite on these threads,........so ya might wanna take a micro torch or something similar to heat up that bolt a lil before ya attempt to take it out.......just a thought.............a propane torch would work too........just dont destroy anything in and around it(wires clips etc).........and ya aint gotta get it cherry red,.............just warmed up a lil to loosen that locktite material!
