    You must have give so stick to snap a m12 bolt.

    Are they secondhand bolts ?

    headbolts are easy to remove. it should be easy to drill out. this is the main reason why i refuse to use stretch bolts and i always buy 12.9 bolts. works out cheaper to

    On the snapped off bolt. I`d spray either WD40 or plusgas down the hole

    same here but the chances of head lift and snapped bolts are greatly reduced by using a high tensile bolt.

    see if you can get a lend of a mag drill. least then you know youll be drilling straight. chances are once you get to a 5mm bit youll be able to pick the old threads out with a tap. in the past ive welded another bolt to wear it snapped. but it all depends how much is sticking out. needs to be at least 3mm
