Broken water pump bolt 2005 bmw 545i 4.4l ?

Broken water pump bolt 2005 Bmw 545i ?

I was reinstalling my water pump on my 05 545i. During the process of tightening I snapped one of the long m6x100 bolt. Part of the broken bolt is about 1-2 inches into the hole. My bolt extractor is not long enough. Do anyone have any idea how I can remove the broken piece from the car? And what type drill or other tools to use ? Thanks 


Everyone saying drink it out but I asked what tools to use

    Get an extractor kit and a drill with diamond or cobalt drill bits.

    How many bolts does the pump take...

    Not going to recommend it, but ran thousands of miles on a beater Ford with a broken bolt that I just left out... 

    Otherwise drill it out and helicoil...  Or something else...
