Drill out the center of the bolt and use an easy out. Be careful not to put to much side force on the easy out, because it will break, and then your headaches will begin.

just make sure you dont drill the hole too big.....

from experience, take it to a pro to get it drilled and and retapped. The reason why your bolt snapped is because the threads are severely seized. You are just wasting time with the easy out.

try some vice grips if there is something to bite onto...otherwise drill it out with a slightly smaller diameter bit.

I would drill it out and then go have it retapped like Poopie said. That sucks bro, hope it works out

Doubt vice grips are gonna do it for ya.

Its hard enough to get em in there and tighten them up good enough and like poopie said, they are probably frozen in there and VG's wont be strong enough to pull em out

id say try the ez out EASILY and if it doesnt work, bring it somewhere, cant be too much....

If its easily accessable, do the easy-out method. But before you do it, spray the broken stud with penitrating oil and let it sit for a while, like overnight. It should make the easy-out method easier.

Yo, hit me up on email about the Exhaus and Grill!
