    If you have, or get, a small left-hand drill bit, the job may be easier than you think. The left-hand bit will tend to unscrew the grub screw enough for you to unscrew the adapter.

    Use an easy-out. It has a conical head with left hand threads.

    No ! Please, please do not use easy-outs for they are the spawn of Satan - When you break one, you have to pay an exorbitant amount to get someone to spark erode the remains out - I've wasted more than enough time dealing with the aftermath of these damned things.

    Most likely it is no more than an M3 screw, so carefully drill the whole thing out.

    Then I do not want you around when I work on one of my cars or my motorcycle!

    With an easy-out that small you really don't stand a chance of getting it out. Just take it to a machine shop or your nearest mechanics shop. I am sure they can help out out better than doing it yourself. I know because I was a Machinist in my working days. You may f**/ it up REAL good. Leave the delicate work to the proffesionals.

    Agreed. I learned that the hard way trying to remove a broken exhaust manifold stud on my MG. Now whenever I find something like that that I cannot remove I take it straight to the machine shop.

    Been there done that a few times and once that large muffler place did it for me but left me with a manifold with only 2 out of 6 studs.
