Does anyone have any experience removing screws, gearbox sized, that no longer has a head.

Where is it broken off at? Flush with the gearbox or lower?
Either way, from what I've seen, the best thing to do is to drill it out.

Dremel yourself a channel into the screw and use a flathead if you have the room and dexterity. It's what I've always done.

First, dont break the head off the screw... I kid I kid. Umm, i say do what slice did. If you need a dremel stop by here and use mine to get to it. I am sure we can find a way to get it out.
