if you take out the other two, and the housing, can you get at part of the bolt and use vice grips? maybe you can post a pic.
To take MountainMax one step further.... If you take the other two bolts out and remove the cover, hopefully the stub of the bolt is sticking out. I would consider cutting a slot in the end of the broken stud with a dremel tool and using a screwdriver to remove the broken bolt. Worst case is to drill a hole in the center of the broken bolt and remove it with an easy "out".
Another thought, Sears makes a bolt remover that you insert into a drill. The concept bolt remover cuts in to the bolt as the drill spins to the left or in reverse direction.
I hate broken bolts! Hope this helps!
