go to a parts store or hardware store and ask for a bolt extractor and tell them what size bolt you are trying to get out

you drill a hole in the bolt, and then thread a reverse threaded bolt into it like this



then when you try and take the extractor out, it takes the bolt with it

An extractor will be left handed. When you screw it in..you will be turning counter clockwise, and the theory is the bolt unscrews (counter clockwise) as the extractor gets tighter inside the bolt.
