is there anything sticking off to grab onto? if there is they make sockets that are made especially for rounded bolts.i would soak it in some penetrating oil now and let it soak so whatever route you go it will be easier.

if you cant get it out the next step may be to pull the head but hopefuly you get it first.

good luck

That's not good.
If the ceramic broke apart and fell into the cylinder you will need to remove the head and vacuum it all out of there. Otherwise it's going to score up your cylinder and ruin your engine.


If there is enough sticking out and you can get to it to weld, you can weld a large bolt into it and use that to remove it?

Got it figured out with an easy out and a torch for some heat and a 3/8s wrench and got it out
