bottom front or bottom rear bolt ? these just attach the alternator to the combined PAS Pump/Alternator bracket,

see page 200 there should be 2 x bolt item 19

1 from front & 1 from rear [not shown in diagram]

bolt item 13 goes through the engine block & screws into bracket item 2, just where the line from the number 2 touches the bracket, this also secures the engine to chassis earth cable [not shown]

easiest way to extract the broken bolt is to remove bracket item 2 from the engine & drill it out on the workbench.
