Drill out the center of the broken bolt. Get an EZ-Out tool from a tool source. Try to start with a drill bit that is about 1/4 the total size of the bolt. gently tap the EZ-Out in before turning it to make sure the tool "bites" into the metal.

Follow the instructions on the EZ-Out package. If it won't budge try a larger set up ( larger drill bit and larger EZ-Out) Try WD40 or something to loosen the crud around the bolt.

If this doesn't work try some heat right at the bolt before twisting it out with the EZ-Out.
