major engine broken bolt

on my 05, GS, the clutch went out, and the two bolts that hold the sub frame on, which you have to remove to swing the rear frame upward, well one broke. I went to loosen them, and it was tough, so I started sparying thread lubrication, I like areo koil, sparyed for days, finally, it was time, and it broke right off. not good. I got some left hand drill bits, to start drilling it out, things started out good, as the smaller bits went in really good. I have new bolts so I know how long they are, and I marked the bits, so as not to drill all the way. things went well for the first three bits. Number four broke inside the bolt, have ever tried to drill a drill bit out??? not good,

I decided to take a break and ask for any advise

thanks

James
