Damn I had a problem similar to yours like 3 weeks ago. Shop tried charging me $100 so I said screw that. I couldnt get my bolt out so luckily a friend had some spare cranks. But using a dremel and drill a slit down the back side. Then use a knife or a flat head screw driver to screw it out.

Just drill it out. isnt hard at all! Just need a little thing to tap a notch into it, then drill a hole and itll twist out. Simple.

Put the other half of the broken bolt back in and try screwing it through, if you're lucky it'll catch and push the other half out

This, and for the person without a dremel, a hacksaw can slot it well too.
