Yesterday I was replacing a faulty crankshaft position sensor and while doing it, the screw got broken and is inside the housing. I know there's a way to get it out using a left-hand drill but there's almost no space there. I've been thinking about gluing the bolt just so I can take the jeep to a shop or trying to see if a right-angle drill attachment would work. If anyone could give me an advice I'd appreciate it. I don't really want to take out the transmission just for a broken bolt.

I know it's been a while but I have an update: I ended up using J-weld and letting it dry overnight, and it glued perfectly; the jeep drove without any problems for 2 months. Then I took it to a shop to install a lift kit and they replaced the screws.
