Replaced gearbox mount yesterday and, just as I was torquing the last bolt, it sheered and sent my hand flying into the engine bay. My nail is now black and needs a hole drilling in it to relieve the pressure. Ouch.

Anyway, here's the now broken mount:

Is there any way to replace the broken bolt? It doesn't seem to be possible to remove the rubber piece to access the back of the casing but I thought I'd check before I go about finding a replacement...

The bolt snapped with less than the required torque stated in my Haynes manual and the nut seemed to be turning with very little resistance compared to the nut I just nipped up while putting the old mount back in.... Not sure what happened there.

Can't wait to do this job for a third time next week! A:
