I did look into that... but i wuldnt want to try that myself and make it worse to the point that it cant be extracted by a pro. I wil probably end up calling a pro if i cant get it out this weekend

There is a bit of the stud sticking out. I can grab this with pliers or vice grips but they wuld slip if i remember correctly. I didnt want to clamp down super hard on the stud for fear of ruining the stud tothe point it culd not be extracted.

Would yu say i should go ahead and clamp on hard as possible and possibly ruin the exposed threading to remove the stud? If i did ruin the exposed thread, can it still be removed via the extraction method yu mentioned?

Thanks a lot for the help guys. me an my e46 appreciate it
