Default Broke bleeder screw brembos help!

Hey guys, i was doing my pads saturday night on my 05 sti and i went to bleed the front right caliper on the outside bleeder screw and it snapped clean off. I tried the extractor and heated it up and everything you think i could do to get it out without drilling it, i did. My question is, is it ok to drill and tap a new bleeder valve? If so has anyone done it or have advice?

that's not the way to do it as you'll end up screwing up the mating surface inside.

you need to take it to a brake shop that can handle that.

keep trying the extractor and get that piece out, and fyi you dont need to touch the bleeder when only changing pads

last time i tried to drill or extract at broken bleeder i ended up with a new caliper. if it didnt loosen and just broke off, dont touch it. be sure to check that it's not seeping fluid, if not then you are good to go for now.
