Somehow, I've snapped one of the bolt threads off the rear caliper (pad retaining bolt).

Does anyone have any ideas for repairing this (I do still have the broken off thread section) or is it a question of a new caliper?

Thanks

    It wouldn't let me attach it in landscape due to pixel size

    Is it the threaded or non threaded side?
