I broke one off under the belly band. it's recessed in the hole. Problem is I cant drill it cuz the belly band makes the drill bit a little crooked, and the chuck grinds up against it.
Any ideas how to get this out? Will one broken transmission pan bolt cause a leak?
If it's a corner yeah, if its in the middle probably not. If you get a drill bit extender you can reach it, they are usually less then $10 at hardware stores.

Look online and find a long #1 center drill (.125 dia.); they are much less likely to wander off center.
I found one in a few seconds using Google Image-"long center drill"
If you're drilling out a 10mm you might get by with the center drill and a tap.
This is the only view you should see when on the road with my S/R!
There was quite a bit of goop in the bottom of the pan and metal shavings on the magnets, the fluid was a little darker than normal, but not smelling burnt.
It's ATX I used mercon V synthetic. 62k miles, 2001. First transmission service.
The RPMS might go up to 3000 in 1st-2nd very occasionally. The transmission was never great in the first place to be honest.
