Why can't you just replace the bolt? If thats really the only thing you broke, it seems like it would be a lot easier, cheaper, and less time consuming than taking it to a mechanic...
Ever hear of rust or corrosion? Or subsequently sheared-off bolt heads? You DON'T use a torque wrench to REMOVE a bolt or nut, only to tighten it at the last iota of movement - but it's only really needed for precision applications, not the 99.99% plethora of simple, typical tighten-until-good-and-snug securing of metal automotive objects to each other. Sheesh! OP, I feel your pain! Been there, done that.... :-(
