Super glue it back together and then twist it out.

if you do this though, be careful not to use too much glue and glue the whammy bar to the bridge, because then that will be even worse to get out

you can use epoxy but like said, tapping on too much and the beoken bit gets stuck.

you can use a pin drill bit into the broken part, reverse drill it out, or tap a nail into the pin hole and screw it out.

they also have special drill bits for broken screws, will work here.

make sure you use a very viscous (Thick, doesn't flow much) super glue and only use a small amount int he center of the break, as to avoid sticking it to the bridge.

That happened to me too. Do you have a cheap guitar like I did?

Take your strings off and the back of guitar off. Remove the bridge and take it out the back. Now you need to shove your trusty drill in and make a hole in it. Then put your trusty rethreader in there for a screw size. Stick a screw or something else in. Then use your trusty welder and weld the 2 together. Then un-screw the new one you put in, and your broken trem should come out of the bridge.
Or do it this was which may screw up your bridge:
Use your trusty drill, and disentigrate the broken trem hoping not to hit the bridge itself. If you do use your trusty rethreader and make a slightly bigger threading than the last, cause now you gotta bigger hole. Then find a trem that fits the new one.

I didnt have any of the tools or the know how, but fortunatly my neighbors a auto repair man. He tried the first method first, but it didnt work so he moved onto the second one. Luckily the new treads were close enough to the origional so I could still fit a new trem in.

I'd say it would be safer to take off the bridge and work on it separately. What kind of guitar is it? You probably shouldn't fool with the hardware if it's an expensive instrument.

I would recommend the glue option. Drilling is very risky and you might end up destroy the whole thing.

its a pretty cheap guitar
an axl marquee sro. it was about 160 dollars, it's not really an expensive instrument.

just drill a pin hole.
