Uhh, you need to talk clearer, and wait more than 3 minutes to bump. Explain exactly what your problem is, in more detail. And maybe a picture or two would help as well.

There are certain ways to do that:
- Make a screw head to the broken part inside the bridge so that you could unscrew it using a normal screwdriver. You can use small drill bit or sharp nail to do so
- Dab just a small bit of "5 min engine epoxy" to the arm and screw it back in, wait 5 mins, and then unscrew it out, careful not to drip the epoxy inside the thread
- Drill the broken piece using the smallest drill bit and try to make a hole, after that, you can unscrew it using small pliers/allen wrench/nail/phillip screwdriver/normal screwdriver

This depends on how tight your broken piece really is

EDIT: Skip the epoxy part if you dont want to use glue/similar

thanx have you tried this

i've tried the epoxy thing, again, depends on how tight your broken piece is, if its too tight, then the epoxy probably wont do you good, still gotta unscrew it using drill hole method. Like jen said, you gotta be careful with it

you would need to route out the body using a template.
and u would need to cut out room for a locking nut.
floyds cost a bit, and this is difficult work.

and once you **** up its almost impossible to go back so yeh its better to just get a new bridge, buy a whole new guitar with a good fr bridge on it, or try to remove the remaining whammy bar section and to buy a new whammy bar.
