body mount bolt ??

While attempting to take off my body mount bolts i snapped one. It's on the driver's side, the middle one of the three. So i have two questions. What's the best way to get it out... and will i be okay driving without it?

I broke the same one. The best solution is to drill it out, tap some threads, and put a new bolt in. But, since it's just one, you'll probably be fine without it. I'd at least try to slip the puck in, just so the body has it to rest on.

if you could, you could weld a head on to it and just take it out, it wouldn't take much, you should be fine, but I would address the problem as soon as possible to prevent other problems.
