    start with small cobalt drill sit I like 1/8 and work your way up , the more material you can remove the easier it will be to remove the broken fastener. By removing more of the broken bolt it reduces the effort to remove the rest of it , good luck:D

    Go to the hardware store and get yourself a grab-it I think their called. It's a left turning drill bit with a tool that fits the hole on the other end.

    i assume its the pinch bolts on the right side. loosen off the other one and it should almost be finger tight, if not just use a set of vice grips on it, and replace the button heads with cap heads, they are also a metric bolt so if you were using a 3/16 allen key that may be the problem
