was changing the brake pads today and while removing the calliper, one of the bolts that hold it in, snapped. what is the best way to go about resolving this problem? the bolt goes in from behind and is a pain in the a** to work with.

Slide bold or Mounting plate bolt?

I rescued a VS with a broken mount bolt, I just drilled it and easy-out it.

all fixed. just used a screw remover and managed to get the snapped bit out. then rushed to the wreckers and picked up another bolt.
