need some suggestions......sheared bolt head off rear hub.

Ok so I was trying to remove the sprocket of my mini and the bolt appeared to be seized. there wasnt to much room to put a wrench on the nut on the inside of the hub. I managed to get a wrench in there and lossen it after a while. I let some penetrating oil sink in, but that was no help. I ended up breaking the bolt head off....!!!!.......So what do yall suggest. I cant take the nut off because it hits the spokes. I dont want to disassemble the whole wheel to get it off. what are my options???? pics to follow.....

Cut the nut off with a dremel. Then easy out the bolt....that would be my guess

Un bolt from behind and then use vice grip pliers to remove

I would either cut the majority of the nut off with a band saw (which I have), or try a nut splitter.

Cutting off the nut would probably be my best bet but I dont have any fancy tools.......lol so find a way to cut the nut off and use vice grips thread the bolt out backwards?

Avoid gouging up the threads on the nut end of the bolt or when you screw it through the hub it will eat the threads out of the hole.
Penetrating oil and heat will be your friend when you get to the "backing it out" part.

I don't know man, I think i would take the tire and tube off, take those two spokes out then drive the bolt out with a center punch...maybe a little more work, but you are not likely to screw anything up that way. Sometimes short cuts, trying to save some time and effort get real expensive. If it can get broke, i can break it.
IF the hub is indead threaded the center punch won't work, but i have a hard time believing the hub is threaded and there is a nut on it.

You are not a nice man.

Obed is partially right, you might be able take those 2 spokes out and continue to turn the bolt in a tightening direction to screw it through. Again heat and penetrating oil are your friends.

Ya thats what I was thinking. I I dont want to destroy the threads since the hub is threaded. seeing as the bolt was frozen in tbere to begin with I dont think it will be an easy task removing it backwards. This is looking to be like it might be out of my skill level. With a lack of tools I miht have to suck it up and bring it to a shop....unless someone that is handy wants to help...

ok, i just read where Hector says the hub is threaded, he should know, he got the other bolts out...at this point i see no choice but to get the nut off first...then either an easy out or a reverse drill bit.

if it is both threaded and has a nut, to try and take it out with out removing the nut first would mandate a broken off head.
um, you can you not see the other 3 are threaded? Eyes checked?

my vision sucks, but at least the track only seems threaded, no actual threads...and you must know a lot of slow old men.
