Bolt removal ?

I decided to clean up the exhaust on my 01 SXR and found one of the motor mount bolt's snapped off. I was hoping it was not snapped on even with the engine block but when I got it mount off it was. I have taken bolts out like this before buy welding a nut to the end of the bolt to make a new head for it but was wondering if anyone has any other idea's. Can't get a drill in there to drill and easy out it inless I can get my hands on a angel drill.

i would pull the engine to gain access and use an easy out. yes, a bit more trouble, but less bloody knuckles.

for future reference, i bought an angle adaptor for my drill, expensive as hell, but pays off in certain situations. i have the ats one, but i am sure there are cheaper versions available.

dont forget to presoak that with a good penetrant.

Even better than welding a nut is use a flat washer! It lets the heat go down the broken bolt better! then let it cool and turn it out with a vise grip!
