    +1 to the penetrating spray, plusgas is good or the 3in1 stuff.

    Is the other one snapped off too?

    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    Cut it flush and drill it out I would. Might take a while but should be doable.

    No, don't cut it flush?! What a stupid thing to say.

    Penetrate it, and use the left over stud to get some purchase on it.

    Cheers for the replies. It's snapped flush so looks like drilling and re- tap the hole. Happy days lol
