I think he said it was a 2008.

I broke my shift lever off at the bolt Saturday afternoon up a Thomaston. Tried drilling it out with left hand bits and they just snapped off. Tried tapping in star bits of various sizes, and actually got some good bite at one point, but they ended up spinning in the hole. Finally, got a ez-out to bite but that snapped off inside the hole. Think I'm at a dead end now. Looks like I'm going to have to take the shaft out and replace it with a new one (or used from ebay).

Go on to NEDB and PM KJDonavan. He is a metal genius and could get it our for sure but it will take a trip to RI to do it. Good luck.

Maybe can get a small grinder and grind off shifter without damaging shaft to bad.

If you can get the shaft out, bring it to me at work in Wallingford. The reason you're breaking bits is because the shaft is stationary and you're moving the drills all over the place, asking them to break off. Needs to be properly supported and drilled out using a drill press or mill or the likes.

You got to get it out,splitting the motor just for that is not good...did you get your ezout at Harbor freight or something?

Apparently you can get it out from taking the clutch side cover off and removing the clutch itself. Still a PITA but better than removing the engine to split the case. Part is only $60. I'll try a dremel tonight. Not much room to work in with peg, case and frame in the way.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone.

can't you just grind/cut through a couple of sections around the shift lever, then punch a section out. Probably not explaining it right, but make a few incisions with your dremel in a couple of spots like in the photo, weaken the metal, then carefully punch it out. Maybe I have no clue, but this is what I would attempt:
