I was working on my car today and was trying to remove a bolt that had clearly been tightened with an impact wrench. So I was carefully trying to loosen it up and about 1/4 of a way into it, SNAP!! It's metric unfortunatley. Bolt is 6mm wide, about 14mm deep. Got about 3mm out and snapped about 2mm into the hole. So about 9mm remains inside the hole. Can't get to the other side of the hole. So only one way to the bolt. Oh yeah the bolt is going in upwards, so soaking it with lubricant will be hard unless someone wants to come hold my car upside down while it soaks. Any ideas on carefully removing what's left of the bolt without damaging the current threading and using the same size bolt.
