Thanks for taking the time to post this, I'm sure it'll be helpful in the future. Not had any studs snap yet but I'm sure it's only a matter of time!

I've only ever had the misfortune to have to remove a broken stud twice. The first time I used a stud extractor and that broke off inside the stud which made things even worse as they're as hard as hell. And the second time I MIG welded a nut on the top of the broken stud and wound it out with a spanner. That seemed to work well as the heat from the welder helped break the bond and it came out quite easily. I'm hoping I never have to do another!!
