brava exhaust manifold stud sheared off - any ideas how to get it out?

been doing the cambelt replacement as it broke ugh! and one of the three studs to connect exhaust manifold to downpipe sheared off and cant get the rest of it out to replace it.

tried clamps etc. Maybe take it to local exhaust place tomorrow but anyone got any tricks please.

You can take the manifold off
Got a welder?
If you have get a thick washer the same size hole as the stud
Put it over the stud and weld it to the stud
Then weld a nut to the washer let cool the undo the nut/stud
It may help if you spray it with WD40 or the same
