Find a guy who really knows how to weld and have a nut welded onto whatever you can still see of the broken bolt. You will use a nut large enough to reach through the hole with a welding rod and tack it on real good. This works only on steel, not aluminum bolts. Then back it out with a wrench carefully. This might not even be possible but it's your best bet without pulling the motor.


Pull the fender & inner fender and whatever else is in the way. Replace the bolt.
