With Maz's instructions ringing in my ears I finally got round to replacing the front engine mount today. Not sure if it relevant to the bolt snapping issue but I was surprised how different the condition of the two removed bolts were. One looked virtually new, the other had quite a bit of corrosion on it.

Some bolts come pre rusted straight from the European distribution centre. Looks like the one on the right is one of them :D

No need, fitted new ones supplied by Maz 8-)

And before you all start taking the piss, that's copper-slip on the bolt heads not rust!

Yes copper-slip.

Just under the washers and on the shank of the bolt.

No of course not, the threads have thread-lock on them.

Yes I did have to be very careful doing it.

Because I was told to by somebody who knows more about it than me.

What do you mean that doesn't narrow it down very much?
