    I'm going back many years to when I used to do virtually all work on our cars and there's probably something better now, but "Easy Outs" used to be the go. Google Easy-Out or check out YouTube.

    I think the bolt is a bit to low to hit with a small grinder unfortunately. I like the look of those easy outs though.

    Yeah easy outs, or even drill a small hole in it sometimes you wil be lucky enough to then screw a screw in2 it with a drill when the ounce it's in reverse the drill and it will undo the the bolt thread rather then The screw

    left hand drill bit i use them all the time with broken bolts, if u cant find one use an easy out, or use a chisel to put an inprint in for a screwdriver.....the hit with the chisel will free it up a bit too
