I was finishing up my driver side birf job. Just when I was finighing up poop just hit the fan. I was torqueing the flange bolts with cone washer. And this happened :crybaby: . So do I need a new wheel hub (Dan you hear ?). Or I can just just get another bolt and nut. What is the best way to remove this bolt off of the hub? I did a test drive for about 35 miles. Every thing looked good. No grease leak or vibration. I have a feeling over time it may cause some issue. Thanks for your input.

Those are studs. It looks from your pic that there should be enough remaining to grab it with some vise-grips (or similar) once you remove the drive plate again (just as you did when you started). Just remove the drive plate, see if you can grab the remaining portion of the broken stud and remove it. Putting in a new one can be done by doubling up on the nuts (against eachother) to torque it in.
