I'm sure the mechanics on here will have a way to get it out, you can buy replacement bolts from PBK - M5 I think are the size.

You seem to have misspelt "your local bolt shop" or "your local car shop", or possibly even "your local bike shop" .
They'll be M5, unless they're M4 or possibly M6. If the OP managed to shear one off, I'd be guessing it was M4.
 but probably not your local hardware shop, because they're still resistant to this newfangled metric nonsense . I once asked where the metric fasteners were, and was told they didn't carry them because there was no demand. So I tried demanding to know where the metric fasteners were... the result was not favourable
 one of my favourite "newfangled metric nonsense" experiences... I needed some M8 bolts for a car modification project. I eventually found them, and they fit perfectly in the M8 threads they needed to fit. But I had to find a half-inch AF spanner to tighten them
