That's going to be a PITA, especially with the engine still in the car. If I'm understanding correctly you'll need to drill and tap if you're unable to extract the broken bolts, though obviously extracting them without having to drill is far and away what you would rather do. That is one of the main mounts to support the weight of the engine, so if all of the bolts holding it to the engine are broken, the other mounts are probably in lousy condition too and you'll want to check them.

Did you ever get it fixed? Or did you just put it back together for now until you have a plan?
