How to Remove this Rubber Mount (Intake Plenum)

The rubber mount on the underside of the intake plenum sheared off when I tried to remove it.

Is there a trick to unscrewing what's left in the IP casting?

Here are 'after and before' pics...





TIA,
Mark

With a Dremel I cut off opposing sides and used vise-grips to clamp, and then passed a screwdriver through the VG's handles and used it to turn the VG (I needed the leverage).

Unbelievable. All's well that ends well though.

Anti seize and very low torque for the new cotton reel.
Also very low torque on the nut with a wavy washer that secures the reel to the bracket.

Anti-seize is a great idea
