    rear engine mount broke

    last night i was driving along when the bottom bolt of the rear engine mount sheared off... now i got the problem of the rest of the bolt stuck in the gearbox.

    does anybody know how i can get it out?

    thanks in advanced Dan

    you could also do with Cleaning the under side of the engine an gear box as that looks like oil under the car from engine or gear box
