If the stud is broken off and you can't get to the threads to do the 2-nut trick as in the last post, you need to use an easy-out to remove the stud. Easy outs are sold at Sears and auto parts stores. They work by being inserted into a drilled hole in the stud and turning the easy out backwards - the easy out has left-hand threads that engage the stud/bolt and turn it backwards to unscrew it from the mating part. Then install a new stud.
