you will need an extractor to pull that out, dont buy a cheap one.

If its a through bolt, you may be able to drill through and use a nut / bolt.

Not sure if you're doing this already, but if not give this a shot.

1. Start with your smallest drill bit, getting it centered the best you can.
2. Drill in as deep as needed, then go with a drill bit a couples sizes bigger.
3. Repeat until drilled to desired size.
4. Use a tap to cut new threads, and insert new bolt.
5. Drink beer.

need a drill bit for hardened metals, a wood bit wont work, neither will one for soft metals. I bought a set from Sears a couple years ago, drills through frame rails like butter

that sucks i only got 2 bits that could go into the screw. the exact size not to big but i think i ran into a problem or maybe not. well i drilled the hole but its going to the right a bit. i couldnt get it in the center. it went through the screw its just a little off. i thought about putting the head on top for guidance . something i shouldve done before.

one of the things i have done when that happens is a drill a small hole in the bolt then tack weld an old and cheap allen wrench into the hole on the bolt then break it lose with the allen wrench and unscrew it. That trick has been very helpful on my friends VW.
