Default AC Compressor Bracket Broken....

I have a 2003 SSEi.. Yesterday the AC bracket broke off of the block leaving a portion of the original bolt in the block! ANY ideas would be nice! I have the Easy-Outs and good Titanium bits but no room! Basically I am stuck without this thing running and need to get this fixed. Also, I need the bracket like an Ethiopian needs a cheeseburger!!!!!!

Can you get your hands on a right angle drill? That should work. Also, I have like 3 of those brackets. PM me a offer and I'll ship it out.

Usually when the bracket comes off and the bolt breaks, there'* no more pressure on the bolt. I've used a super small chisel (Sears auto section) and a hammer to tap the bolt counter clockwise until you can get a finger on it. Usually comes right out w/o any trouble.

Start by making an indent and then use that indent to push the bolt around.
