To remove a bolt sheared off flush, you need a center-punch (a drift pin with a very sharp point) to punch the exact center of bolt, an EZ-Out tool, you can buy a single one wit the proper size drill bit, don't have to buy a set) Punch bolt, in exact center. If you have a drill bit index it's easier to begin with a small bit, then go to bigger bit. But not mandatory Hammer in EZ-out, and I mean WHACK it a good one, turn tool counterclockwise and it should grip and un-thread bolt. Buy proper bolts for new ones.
