  • Broken exhaust stud

    Anybody have any tips on removing a broken exhaust stud? I bought a stud removal socket but there just isn't enough left to get a bite on it. Also tried vice grips with no luck. I don't have a welder so if anyone has an idea i'm all ears. Thanks!

    Use an easy out. Any hardware store has them. You could also try an impact driver that you hit with a hammer.

        Soak it well with PB Blaster. It isn't going to be easy, so take your time. Applying heat from a propane torch will help too.

      I tried one of the extractor sockets and broke the stud off flush. I ended up drilling the stud and using an ease out. Start with a centerpunch and a pilot hole first, then move up to a larger drill bit.

        I've tried the PB blaster and heat, going the EZ out route as soon as I can get to the store. Thanks for the input.
