:unsure: Not looking good at trying to drill out that 6mm bolt from where it's at without having to drop the engine cradle etc. :wacko:


:ChinScratch: So after a bit of :PullingHair: it's time to play even dirtier. :Tapping:


:WonderScratch: What's dirtier you're wondering.  :huh:



How about using a hollow end mill around the broken off bolt and removing just enough of the aluminum housing to get a grip on it and then use a spacer to replace what I removed after I get it out? ;)


Now I'm just waiting for that hollow end mill I ordered. :Tapping:


I'm also replacing those bolts with studs just in case I ever have to change that :ArguingSmileys:switch again. :DevilLaughing:
