    Best way if the head is completely snapped off then the only real way is to drill I to the shaft o the bolt and use an extractor I have a set of snap on extractors with are reverse flute so knock that in then turn with a spanner it grips in the hole and extracts the bolt

    Other option is to drill it through completely and then re tap a new thread in to it

    Or if you can get onto the other side of the bolt with the threads then either try some mole grips or I would try with 2 nuts screwed on end try to untwist that way or spot weld another bolt to it and use that but I have all the tools unlike most ppl so 1st 2 options would be the best mate
