This is the metal hook that came off after dropping the camera. View from above

The screw is broken inside and can't (I don't know how) to remove it. The hook is inserted on the side of camera and then screwed on the camera as seen below. Unfortunately I've been asked too much to repair it (more than 70 euros) and the metal hood piece seems not available to buy. If I could remove the screw broken inside I would fix it easily.

What I have noticed is that somehow the right hook is stronger (the screw on the side that is still intact goes all the way through the hook and is attached again to the camera) This one instead is screwed with a smaller screw not going all the way through on the other side.
