Define some. How much is sticking out? I'd say get a nut that's big enough to slide over what's left of the bolt, heat the end that's seized into the frame and use an air gun to work it back and forth till it comes out. This is a common problem.

Do this.


Cut a hole with a zip cut to access the hidden nut. Heat up said nut with torch then if enough bolt is sticking out, use vise grips to remove. If not enough sticking out, weld on a bolt or nut then remove. I didn't break my bolt, but the nut started to spin inside the subframe.
