John,

I took a look at the parts diagram for the chain cover....

I broke an M6 X 12 stud at the thermostat (999-062-055-02-OEM) . The only M6 stud I see (on the chain cover) in the parts diagram to "borrow" is the M6 X 22 (999-062-102-02-OEM. What's the difference between these 2? Lenght? Is this the one you speak of?

As a side question to you, (and for this layman): If one decides to remove a perfectly fine stud froma case, what's the best way to get it out WITHOUT damaging the threads? If one were to clamp it with vicegrips, wouldn't you bugger up the threads? I guess the same question applies to installation of a new stud: what's the proper way to install it without damaging the threads that the nut will thread onto?

Thanks for your patience...

Best,
