There are special tools to remove that broken bolt, you will have to drill it out without damaging the threads or plastic shoe above. Use anti seize on the threads next time. The driveshaft rust is normal, use a metal brush to clean then apply spline grease before installing the pump. This is why CRC and T-9 are my best friends!!
BTW have you checked your tunnel for cracks?

Go to NAPA and get you a Helicoil Kit. part number 770-3091 size M6x1 Drill Size 1/4. I used this kit to replace two bolts that went south on my X and and they have lasted all season including the nationals.
1. Drill out the old bolt with a 1/4 in drive bit
2. Use the tap that come in the kit
3. Put the threads on the thread tool that comes with the kit and insert them in. This put the OEM size back in the 1/4 hole that you drilled.
for this process i used two.
4. you can find the OME bolts at a parts place with the same 10mm head.

I dont think there is Napa in Italy!
You need some kind of a bolt extractor tool. Stahlwille should make that kind of tool I assume.
