got a slight problem

I'm doing a slight restoration of my floors in my 91 yj and encountered a slight problem with some bolt removal. On removal of the rear bench seat i snapped a bolt clean flush with the floor. I have the head of the bolt but the rest is still threaded into the floor. any ideas on how to get that out would be helpfull. I would hate to drill it out and re tap the hole.

Or get a left handed drill bit.

If it won't back out you have a hole for the easy out.

Also soak that bad boy in some PB blaster for a day or 2
If it's not supposed to move and does use duct tape.
If it's supposed to move and doesn't use WD40
