Default broken exhaust stud at manifold

While redoing my timing belt I snapped the bottom exhaust stud where the pipe bolts to the manifold. Anyone have any advise for removing the broken stud and replacing it? I was thinking of heating the manifold with a torch and pounding the broken one out.

I am going to check with the dealer in the morning and see if i can buy just the stud from them.

Anyone know where I can get an after market stud and or what size it is? I know the bolt is M8 x 1.25. Thanks.

My advice - soak with PBBlaster, get an "EZOut" tool. You drill a small hole in stud, then use reverse thread screw to work the bolt out (that's the EZOut)
You may need heat, but pound it out?

To me it looked like a pressed in stud. When they broke on my truck i heated them red and they pounded right out. This is on the part where the exhaust pipe bolts to the manifold not where the manifold bolts to the engine.

Ah, so! Then you're probably right.
Go easy pounding - the exhaust manifold is cast iron, don't wanna crack it!

I called the dealer, they dont sell the stud. But they said it is M8x1.25x35. I think I am just going to get a bolt that size and tighten it up with a wrench.

I plan on using my air hammer to knock out the stud since I wont have much room to swing a hammer.
