Hey all!

Im p****d! About a year ago I snapped the lower caliper bolt with a little spanner.

Today I snapped a lower Thermostat housing bolt!

Last time i resorted to replacing the park, the bolt was stuck in that was easy but still a pain.

Im not exatcly going to do that with the head!

So what size drill bit and EZY out should I get???

Or should I do something else???

Part of the bolt in the head is pretty light inside its stupid hole as well!

Thanks!

get a center punch, make a dent in the left over bolt then hit it anti-clockwise to undo it?

In Adelaide we have a bloke called captain thread. He is a mobile umm... thread man lol. Had a water pump bolt snap in my XF block, he came to my house, drilled the bolt out and put a hellicoil (dunno how it is spelt) in. Just had to remove the radiator brfore he came.
