some times i have used an stud exracter (tapperd lefthand thread) so as iy goes in it gets tighter and the the stud comes out but it is usually brass and can just crumble

not sure of the thred sizes good luck ant way mate :wink:

I've used a stud extractor to good effect, just make sure you invest in a high quality set (£20 ish) as the cheap ones (£3 from the market) WILL snap off and give you an even bigger mess than before!
