Front Motor Mount, Center Bolt Broken

Hey everyone. First post here, so please tell me if this is the right place to post.

I have a 2001 Honda Accord. I just replaced the front motor mount. Everything fits great and works fine, but the center bolt that goes into the aluminum support beam (?) broke off inside the engine block. There's a little bit of the threads along with the head that broke off but not enough came out to thread it in. The other two bolts are in nicely on the top part that attaches to the engine block though. I drove it and it feels much better, but I'm afraid that center bolt is important. All the bolts in the actual mount are in perfectly. Just that center bolt is broken.

Is it okay to drive? How could I fix this?

4 cyl or V6?

Hard to say how long it will last with only 2 of the 3 mounting bolts installed. Most likely the bolt broke due to the threads being seized so the reminants will not come out easily. Best solution would be to have the broken bolt drilled out and replaced.

I expect you can drive it for some time especially if you go easy on the gas. Maybe someone else here on the forum has had a similar experience and can advise.
