Default Broken Trans Bolt?

2003 Non Turbo.
Manual Transmission Pops out of 5th Gear,
Definitely is the transmission.
I just picked up this transmission, supposedly came out of a wrecked 2002 car with 67,000 miles.
The issue I have is it looks like one of the case bolts had the head sheared off.
Anyone have a picture of one to compare? So I can have this one ready to go and any gaskets on hand when I pull the original.
I only want to do this once.
If it does look like a sheared bolt I have a Couple of options, First I will try and cut a slot in the bolt end with a dremel and get the broken bolt out with a flat blade screwdriver, or I need to separate the case and try and get the broke bolt out with visegrips, or I could use the bellhousing from the original transmission.



Thanks for any help or comments.
Peter

Don't start anything just yet......I'm not 100% sure,but I think that may be an 'Alignment Pin',and not a bolt;Give some time for me to look,and other members to respond......I think it may be one of these,or similar. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lakewood-Sus...-/390713734703

It's broke off alright. You could also look at the trans you have.




You need to check differential shimming if you change bellhousing, and shim it.
I think it should come out, though

Looks like bad news;In both of these diagrams,it does appear to show a bolt head.....But,yours sure broke off clean,and no marring on the bellhousing from being tightened?

Do like Rob said;Just take the other bolts out,to separate the bellhousing,and you can easily grab the broken one with some vise-grips.......You probably need to do that anyway,and make sure everything inside looks 'Kosher'.
