Sheared coilpack bolt.

Hi all. Ive got a sheared coilpack bolt on a jts. My plan is to glue a stud in and put a nut on top. Do any of you know what I should stick it in with.
Thanks in advance.

Are you saying you sheared the bolt and the threaded part is stuck in the hole? Usually they come out easy have you tried drilling a hole in it and reversing the drill - sometimes they just unwind. Or if not you can carefully hammer something suitable into the drilled hole like a small hex key.

Or have you stripped the thread in the aluminium casting? In which case if you can't be bothered helicoiling it then find a self tapping screw just big enough and use that. You might have to drill out the metal bush in the coilpack a tiny bit.
