I screwed up

I got tired of the rattle so I had to change those sway bar links. Broke the bolt off on the bottom of the passenger side one. I have no idea how in the heck I am going to get it out now. The rattle is gone but I am worried. How much will this affect the car?

Thanks,
Dieselman

The sway bar itself has quite a bit of give. I just leaned on it a bit to take the tension off the links, and they popped out without difficulty. Did you remove the wheel, or try to do it w/ the wheel in place?

I did it with the wheel off. I sprayed them with oil and the top bolt broke free. I thought the bottom one was turning but it was just the bolt twisting. I drove it to work this morning and could not tell any difference in the way it drives. I guess I am just not going to worry about it.

Thanks,
Dieselman
