broken drill bit


I was drilling holes for my shower door in ceramic tile and broken the bit off inside the hole. Can anyone tell me how to remove that broken piece from the hole?

Is the broken bit sticking out of the hole at all? What does the bit look like? If it is fluted(spiral shape) you might be able to use a needle nose pliers to pull it out. Once you break a drill bit off they usually are stuck where they areif you can't get them with a pliers. Can you drill another hole somewhere and just caulk the one with the broken bit?

Thanks for your interest but, no you can't see it so I think, as you say I'll have to move either up or down. It will be covered with the shower door frame. I gave up and ordered a diamond bit from CA so hopefully it will work.
