I used a torch to heat up the broken stud on mine then I replaced the stud with a bolt .. I have no problem with it.. A bolt works fine..

If there is enough of the stud protruding you might get it out with penetrating oil, heat and a vice grip. If it snapped off flush you'll need to drill it out then use an easy-out and penetrating oil to remove it. Any hardware store should have a replacement stud, or you can order it through a Chevy dealer.
