Broke torx bit into torx bolt. what to do?! HELP!! - Page.
Torx keys are designed specifically to tighten and loosen screws with a torx head. The handle of the key is used to provide leverage that tightens without causing cam-out, which would ultimately result in damage. The six-sided star-shaped head is unique to these tools and screws and chosen as a high torque can be achieved.
Assuming I've read the post correctly the end of the torx driver is cleared but you can't undo the screw itself. You could try a better quality torx bit but before trying to undo it give it a sharp tap with pin punch or similar to shock the screw also a bit of plusgas might help.
Torx bits are characterized by a 6 point star shaped pattern which are used to drive fixings with the same head pattern. The shape allows you to achieve a higher torque by reducing slippage. Applying too much pressure could result in damaging the head or tool because they resist cam-out better.
Removing Torx screws can be a little bit more complicated than regular screw heads where you can fit in a flat head driver for a Phillips screw head or maybe a butterknife if push comes to shove. When improvising a way to remove a Torx screw, you would need to consider the size of the screw head.

Find a flat head screwdriver bit just slightly larger than the torx.. is a stuck bolt with the hardened tip of an eazyout broken off and stuck in it, and drilling them out is a total sod.
