You will need a tool commonly called an "easy out" or bolt extractor set, you will need to be able to drill a hole into the bolt in order to use the bolt extractor, if you can't get to it with a normal power drill, you may need a right angle drill, these are expensive but can be rented at a reasonable price from most rental stores, be sure you have enough removable parts out of your way to access the bolt for drilling, then replace with same size thread and grade, use the old bolt if possible for comparison.
