Aye to cause you twice the nightmare when trying to get them out

What you normally do with those to to give them a good whack with a hammer before trying to loosen them...this shocks the screw and breaks it free so it can be loosened more easily.

When reinstalling put a dab of anti seize grease (copper slip) on the screw threads then it will come out no problem the next time.

Don't worry about only having one screw holding the disc...the screws only really hold the disc to stop it rotating on the hub when the wheel is off...the wheel bolts lock the disc in place on the hub and center it.
If you have nowt better to do you could drill the snapped screws out if you feel like a's good practice for drilling other snapped bolts you may encounter in the future...that's a summer job unless you have a nice warm garage to work in.

So your car has separate discs, the rears on the Laguna are all in one, the disc & hub are one piece.
