Default Alternator mounting bolt sheered?

Hi all,

I was adjusting the alternator belt (Squealing) and when tightening the bolt on the adjuster to some form of mount it sheered off leaving the shaft still inside the mount.

Access is minimal to heli coil this. What does the alternator connect too.. Is it part of the engine ? or a mount that comes off?

Thanks

If your referring to this bolt, it threads into the block casting. I don't know if the bolt protrudes out the back at all, with no load on the thread now, I'd expect it to not be very hard to turn if there's anything to grip on.

That is the exact location... The bolt does go straight through and is now stuck inside since the nut sheered off whilst tightening

The belt is now squealing.. Any ideas guys and I appreciate the responses

I can only suggest one of these drills and some extractor bits. Worse case it would need drilling completely out and a nut & bolt used.
Not the sort of drill most of us have though. I've got a 90 degree chuck jobbie to go on my drill but it's bigger than the one below.
Hopefully somebody's got a better idea.

Access is limited in there... Will need to see what space there is.

If the bolt is seized it is best not to attempt with easy out, it that break you will have a devil of a time (hardened steel).

I have had good results Mig welding a nut on the offending stud (even countersunk), the heat makes is loosen and the nut has purchase..

I've broken them off before at work, your proper stuffed if that happens
He did say it broke whist doing it up so I'm assuming its not seized, doesn't look a lot of room though. You never know, if the drill bites it may even wind out the back. Best of luck

I found this:-

Erbauer Angled Chuck 10mm | Chucks & Keys | Screwfix.com

Perhaps this could help?
