In this video I show you how to use a common bolt extractor to remove sheared fasteners from their threaded holes without damaging the threads.
This is a relatively simple process but I outline choosing the proper extractor and hole size, choosing the proper bit, and cautions when dealing with blind and open holes.
The broken fastener is a splash shield fastener on a Honda Accord.
But the techniques shown here will apply to removing broken fasteners from any threaded hole with a broken bolt.
