So i had the lovely opportunity to replace my lift bolts on the weekend. The intake bolt was snapped like with most 7th gens. To get the snapped piece out we were going to remove the cam shaft but there was to much that could have went wrong wo we decided one the drilling option which was also a worrying think to do too. So we had the idea to use a metal brake line as a sleve to guide the drill onto the lift bolt along with a screw extractor set. By using the brake line it eliminates the problem of the drill slipping.
I hope this helps at least one person.
