Was changing door lock actuator and stripped the female torx screw, suggestions?

I was unscrewing the female torx screw (BMW ) and I went counter clockwise and stripped it. I tried drilling it out for about 3 hours and finally got most of the screw but there is still a stub in there that wont really drill down anymore nor can I grab the screw and turn it with needle nose pliers or anything (it is very tightly screwed). Here is a pic:

Is there anyway to get this screw out or take the window out without loosening it with the screw? What are my options at this point? Could really use some help here. It seems like there another female torx screw and screw nut on the other side of the window holder, which I tried getting a wrench to turn but it only turns a little bit before tightening up.
