I managed to snap one of the two mounting bolts holding the propshaft center bearing of my 2005 L200 K74T 4D56 (see attached pics).

Any suggestions as to what is the best/easiest way to solve this issue?

Drill the stud out carefully and replace with high tensile bolt and locknut (not nylock)

Thanks for the quick response and advice DibbyDibbyDJ! Problem is that the crossmember the brackets sit on has a flange that is in the way, meaning I can only get drilling access at a slight angle. As I don't want to cut an access slot in this flange, I guess I could grind the remainder of the bolt off, then drill a smaller diameter (angled) hole and then file the hole straight. Any thoughts?

I have used an angle grinder to remove the bottom of the broken bolt before

Ended up angle grinding only the stub, then filing a minor notch in the cross member below, drilling slowly and gradually larger at an ever so slight angle and finally filing the hole straight. Did the trick 👍
