    Oh dear that's not fun! I had the same but with one of the downpipe bolts. Tried to use an "easy out" which also sheared off inside and then ended up having to drill it all out. Luckily for me I was already taking the turbo out.

    If it's sheared flush with the turbo then I think you're going to have to take the turbo off to sort it.

    looks like a fair bit of thread left its sheared just below the maifold level. how many bolts hold the turbo up is it just the three seen from above?
    if so if i undo the other two would it be possible to drop the turbo slightly enough to get some grips on the thread and try wind it out?

    Yeah just the 3 bolts. If you can get it out with grips then you'll save yourself a load of work. Good luck.

    don't use a deep socket on them, use a normal 17'' socket and a wobble bar
