the cap of the bolt broke off, the other half of the bolt is still inside the place where it was broken off.

that happened to me when i was installing my grounding kit. The head of the bolt connected to the engine broke off. I used a needle nose plier to twist it out. I drove for 2 weeks with out that bolt connected. It worked fine. The car will just be missing 1 grounding point. Im pretty sure it wont hurt ur car. I went to a toyota dealership to order the bolts.

Man you have no idea how reassuring that feel when you said that. Did you went ahead and finish your grounding kit? do you have instruction?
thanks a lot
