Default Daytona spoiler

I had to remove my spoiler to move some furniture, must be this had never been off. As both the bolts broke. Does anyone have any idea how to remove these. They are broke off inside the spoiler, they are sticking out maybe a 1/4 inch and rusted very badly. Please Please help, any ideas welcome.

I had the same thing happen on mine. Never was able to get them out. Ended up just cutting them off flush and using new bolts. Then sold it like a week later bc I got sick of it always being in the way.

Soak them with PB Blaster and let them sit for a day or two. Should loosen up the rust. If there's anything left to grab onto, latch on with a pair of vice grips and SLOWLY try to turn them out.

Last resort, drill them out and bore new threads with a tap...

Drill into the broken bolt and use a easy out bolt extractor

Be careful using extractors... If THEY break, they're a B*TCH to get back out...

Now it looks like the metal around the bolt is pushing down into the spoiler! I really want my spoiler back please help! I was wondering if I should break out the whole piece of metal and try to fill it with tiger hair and maybe put a new insert into it?

Go buy a high strength good quality bolt extractor tool, soak with rust remover or a penetrating oil. Use something to get strong leverage for the first try on the removal stud.
