Broke a wheel bolt inside the hub, who can remove it?

Can any shops or members on here remove a broken bolt inside the hub? It is broken inside and it is not sticking out the hub when the wheel is removed. Who can help ?

Have you tried an "easy-out"? If you start with a real small drill bit to get your hole well-centered, then work up, you should be able to do this yourself, or you can take it to someone and have this done.

the problem is, if its rusted in there its either cross threaded or seized. and easy out wont get it out unless it snapped on entry.

It will have to be redrilled and tapped, worst case scenario you get a new bearing a hub to be pressed in.
