how to get broken bolt out of....?

i replaced my VC gasket in my 89 prelude si and the center VC bolts head broke off leaving the shaft in the stud with no way to get it out. what do i need to do to fix this?? how much am i looking at. i did the most simple thing and had all sorts of stuff break. its just old.















the studs opening is 1/2 a centimeter. will the easy out work?? or would it be easier to get a new VC stud

OMG! I had the same thing happen when I was changing my starter. I had a bold head snap off and I was PISSED. Anyway, if it will fit (hondas are small compact engines) you need to get an easy out drill bit. You drill it into the bolt and then take a ratchet and get it out. If not, take it to the mechanic.
