    is the bolt still stuck in then?

    dremel a groove in then get a driver on? whack a smaller socket on?

    dremel some flats in and mole grips on?

    drill then easy out?

    Bolt should only be tightened to 25Nm so somebody has been a heavy handed whore! Mole grips would be the best bet, or take the head right off it with a grinder... remove the tensioner, stick two nuts on it, lock them together and hope the remains of the bolt come out without removing the threads from the block.

    I'd be questioning why it was so tight in the first place to round...

    mole grips wouldnt touch it, its a torques bolt so its pretty flat, its either get it off or force the belt again, either way its a risk but its also quite hard getting the timing while forcing the belt on
