Question about 2005 Jaguar X-Type
Buy a set of Left Hand Drills, Centre pop the bolt and start drilling make sure the drill is in reverse mode, the bolt will star backing off within a few seconds, I have used these drills for removing bolts of all sizes on a regular basis, easyouts snap, last week I removed 35 bolts in under 20mins.

You will need to use thing called an "easyout" or "eziout"
you have to drill the center of the broken bolt, then gently hammer in the eziout, to then wind the broken stud loose. You may notice that the eziout has the reverse direction thread, so the harder you wind it out, the more it winds into the broken bolt. Use plenty of penetrating oil about the stud, even let it soak for a bit. Just don't break off the eziout, they are super hard, and you will not be able to drill that one out. You can buy then from most hardware stores. Messy, but the only real way to get the the problem solved.I hate it when a stud snaps, it happens all the time, usually the last one to be undone. Good luck.

You will have to use an "easy out" . You first drill a hole into the bolt. The get an "easy out" and hammer it in to the hole that you drilled. Turn conterclockwise. There are different sizees for different sized bolts.Your parts dealer will give you more info.
