You can remove the broken piece of the thumb screw by simply starting a self tapping screw into it. Then slowly remove the self tapping screw and the broken piece will turn out with the friction of the screw.

You can remove the 'nut' by squeezing the square sections and pulling.

Hope this helps... Glenn
