That has hapend to me more times than I can count.
one time, they called me asking for it. I told them they had it from
last year ! yup, they 'found' it.
There are stud removers. a bore with tapered ridges. you hammer them
onto the thing and they twist off by cutting into the metal. that
would be a part found at SEARS. 00946338000
Another way is to weld a nut or bolt onto the thing and remove that way.
In this case, I would turn (notice how I'm bringing this on-topic?) a
sleeve that would also be fitted with some method of clamping the thing.
the center would have a hole for a 1/4" drill bit.
then I would drill out the works, all the way.
then enlarge the hole until I drilled the threads out of the nut. you
can easily get new studs, so that what I would expect to do anyway.
Messy, but getting that hole centered is critical.
- I hope you never owned a Fiat. Not only were most of the parts only
available from the dealer, the tools to get them in and out were also
only available from the dealer!
