Unhappy R-Reg Accent brake caliper trouble

Just want to start by saying hi to everyone on the forum.

I joined the forum to hopefully get some technical advice on my 1998, 1.3 coupe i, accent.

After changing my brake pads tonight I got the caliper together but when I screwed the bolt that secures the capliper in, the bolt snapped leaving the threaded half stuck inside.

What would be my best option here? Would I need to replace the whole caliper or could I rescue it by tapping the broken bolt out of the caliper? My guess is if the bolt gets tapped out the thread will be knackard the standard bolt wont fit it once its removed renduring the caliper useless.

Any help on how this problem can been solved or the best solution would be gratly apprciated.

Im so annoyed because something that should have only cost me 20 is now looking at costing me about 70 or 80 if not more but I suppose thats the cost of motoring, lol!

Regards, Dave
