You need to have a new bearing pressed in.
As for the broken bolt, wiggling and twisting the sensor will allow it to come loose (straight up) off the broken bolt. You are lucky that you will have the stub of headless bolt sticking out there - heat the heck out of the strut at the base of that and use some vise grips to gently twist on it, you should feel it pop free, then it will twist right out. If you do end up breaking it off instead, then yes, you'll have to drill it out.
If you get it hotter than heck, then give it a spritz of penetrating oil (caution, possible to have it flame up) it will be sucked down the threads somewhat, if you're not able to get it loose after heating it up good then reheat it and try that. It may take a few heat-cool cycles, be patient.
