I have a broken bolt in my exhaust and i need it removed. Any suggestions without drilling or welding ?

You may want to try an easy out kit which sometimes is helpful in removing broken bolts where the only option may otherwise be having to drill it out. In some cases, heating the area up will allow the broken bolt to be extracted out.
