Weld a nut to the bolt through the middle of the nut let it cool down and unscrew it if it brakes off do it again

Sears sells a kit that is a left handed drill bit(s) with left handed extractors and it is harder steel - use them all the time - runs about $90 for the kit

How do you remove a broken head bolt?


I would centre punch mark the centre of the broken stud and with a drill stand, drill a hole down the whole length of the stud, getting larger and larger as I change the bits. When I reach the last threads peel the thread out using a pick. If the thread is damaged, drill oversized to tape to fit a Hellicoil.
The largest Essex Engine was 3.4litre V6, not 3.8. The most common was the 3.0litre fitted to the Zodiac and Capri. It was a V4 with two more pistons and uses the same head bolts etc.

The pin on the ignition barrel is broke how do I take the barrel out


You must drill it out using progressively larger drill bits until it comes out. A real fun job, trust me.

How do I get bolts out that have broken off so that I can replace the strutts on both sides in the rear of the car?


you need to go to auto parts plqse and purchase some liquid wrench and spray down all rusty bolts that you need to replace.let it sit for a while so it can penetrate. take your old broken bolt with you and purchase a drill tap that you can drill out the bolts .this is the same process you use when brake off head bolt.

How to replace head gasket trailblazer 4.2


Chilton online manuals has decent (at best) step-by-step instructions. It lacks detail, but if you have some auto knowledge, it's not too bad. When I removed my head bolts, out of 14, 4 did NOT snap! Yes, that's right, 10 of them snapped! Rather than spending $300 on an extraction kit I found a metric bolt that fit into the bolt hole - not threaded, just in the top part where there are no threads. You need a guide to drill into the snapped bolt piece. After finding the right sized bolt, I cut it to about 3/4". Then I used a nut to tighten it, centered on my drill press. I used a good bit (with plenty of oil) to drill a hole right through the top, centered. This worked as my guide, and ALL 10 snapped pieces came out VERY easily. DON'T SPEND $300 ON AN EXTRACTION KIT!!

My 2002 Land Rover SE Freelander's roof antenna snapped off. I need to know how to remove and replace it.


same thing happened to me in a parking garage.. i needed to go to the hardware store and get one of those drill bits that extracts bolts.. i think it was 1/4" size but you should check to see with a 1/4" drill bit..
if it broke off so you have some access to plastic housing.. then its easy with pliers but if yours did what mine did, all you are left with is an antenna housing with a plugged screw hole..
good luck

Bolts to engine bracket snapped in engine block


if it was the right hand mount,it's common.Mine did it and there was 2 options.Get them drilled and tapped out or pull the engine out.Sorry to tell you this.What I did was lift the motor with a jack.Get the old engine mount off.I paid a guy to come in and what he did was genius.With mirrors and some really good air drills,he drilled the broken bolts(started with dies to get a start on the bolts).Drilled the bolts.It took about 4 drill bits because they burnt out very easily.Then put in ezi-outs to get them out.It took about 2 hours and before he started,the wd40 went on the bolts about 12 hours prior.He said it helped a lot.It was a fiddly job but this guy had the gear to do it.It cost $120.A lot cheaper than an engine pull.(the new engine bolts cost $6.)They main bit was to get a spinning metal die in there to give the drill a good start.Mate.I hope this helps

Block and mounts


there are at least 2 bolts that hold mount to block maybe 3 but whatever, you need them all. if you got one broke off in the block you got to get it out, drill hole down center and use an easyout to get it out, and plenty of penatrant. now there is only one bolt and nut that holds mount to the frame , if thats broke, all you need is a new motor mount.

SNAPPED WATER PUMP BOLTS


Unfortunately, I've had this exact same issue with my F-150 5.0L... The pump bolts go through the timing chain cover and into the block. However, if you're lucky, once you finally do get the timing cover off(which will have to be removed at this point), you might have enough bolt hanging out of the block to get a grip on and possibly back the rest of the way out. There is a penetrating spray on the market called PB Blaster that is the very best at freeing up seized bolts. Spray it down really good and give it a day or so to penetrate. Not too sure of what size of easy-out you'd need, but I ended up having to drill mine out and putting in helo-coils. It's a real pain, but aside from junking the block, it's about the only option available. One more thing...if you do get all of your bolts out, before trying to put them back in, make sure to take an air compressor and blow out all of the bolt holes as they tend to get a lot of corrosion inside that will, 99% of the time, cause even more snapped bolts when trying to reinstall your new water pump, as this is what happened to me. Hope this helps and from one guy who's had to deal with this headache to another getting ready to...good luck, and no matter what you might begin to think, a gallon of gas and a match are not a better way of dealing with it, though it will sound tempting. Try to have a nice day!
