Key is that there is a bit left. Hopefully enough for a vice grip...but...before trying, figure out
why it broke.

If bolt, then bottomed out?

If stud and nut, then did the threads bind?

That needs to be fixed or known and figured HOW2 avoid it later

First, check to see if it will turn out by hand. Many times it will break and then screw out by hand

If not, then vice grips first. Then easy out
