Bad in that one of the rear trailing arm mounts ended up with a broken screw in it, and all the nice and easy fixes did not work. :roll: What is left of the screw is now beneath the aluminum face, and of course any drill bit wants to bend / wander off to the aluminum. I have a helicoil kit coming in tomorrow, and once I know the full size drill bit I can run on it, it will hopefully be stiff enough to not wander, but I am not confident. So a new mount may be needed.

I just had to deal with a m2 screw that had broken off flush in an aluminum scale winch on a friends crawler. Being it was an m2 i really had my doubts getting it out. I used the same method I use on / cars with broken or stripped bolts and screws. I lightly welded it creating a small ball of weld on the end of the screw. Normally from here i would weld on a nut to extract it with but the little ball was more than enough to get a pair of pliers on and simply unscrew it.

Simple method if you know someone with a welder. Took more time turning the welder on than it did to do the job and extract the screw.
