Default Power steering pump hose - broken screw

I was getting some belt squeal so I did some digging and thought it might be related to the power steering hose o-ring. After replacing the o-ring, the screw snapped while I was tightening it down. Anyone know how bad I bad I screwed myself on this one? Any ideas for the most cost effective solution?

Use a chisel to turn the bolt out. If that doesn't work weld a nut on it and remove it. There is even enough showing to grab it with vice grips. It looks easy to remove.

You'll most likely have to drill out the broken stud and make some new threads with tap and die set.

Get vice grips on it and turn it out. Or try to weld on to it if you even have the stuff to do so.

If those fail drill the bolt and use an EZ out to get it out, retap the threads, reinstall.

Vice grips, or dremel a cross on it and back out with a Phillips screwdriver, a shot of heat with a mapp or propane torch will help too.

Try getting some PB blaster on it if you don't have a torch to heat it up

I was able to grab it with a small vice grip. Thanks for the advice all!

Buy a torque wrench and download a factory service manual.

The next time you have a similar situation the correct route would be
1st= vice grips (there are better pliers with sharper teeth made by knippex)
2nd= Easy out / screw extractor, you need to drill a through the center of the screw/ bolt shank to stick the extractor into. Don't use a worn out extractor it'll **** it up worse. You tell by looking at the teeth on it should be clean and sharp where it engages in the hole. I've had guy tell me that it was good only to see it worn in the exact spot it needed to work at.
3rd= (You dont want to ever get to this point) drill out the entire bolt/screw and tap new threads! in most cases you may not be able too because the next bolt size up won't work with the part.
I won't mention welding because unless you have a welder it makes no sense.
also penetrating oil, gas torch, and freezing does work.
always use oil first
cold or heat really depends on situation...
