Only thing you can do is use a stud remover...failing that drill them out carefully.
Use progressive size drill bits starting with 2 or 3mm and working up.
You might be able to use tapered stud/bolt remover to pull out without damaging threads.
If you do damage them then try drill out a clean hole a size bigger and re-taping a new thread in and use new bolts a size bigger.
Most garages use heli-coil to repair, but haven't seen the kit for ages anywhere.

Here's a few tools that might help..

Bolt/stud remover on ebay

socket type remover

stud remover

You can get new bolts from most good hardware stores or fixing wholesalers like    F.W.B.

When i sheared mine I found with the rocker off there was enough thread showing to get a pair of grips at them. don't talk them thats all that i can say and tight then a quart turn is what i do.

I had a torque wrench that did the setting but i can only assume it's ok if the bolts are New. worst thing was it was the very last one that snapped, did i curse. The file was too big to post on the site for the tinting I send it to your email address that's on your personal info
