Hood Stud Replacement

I went to go replace one of my hood studs that had been snapped off. I grab what's left and twist, and it unscrews right out, and I hear a bit of a thunk inside the hood. I go to re-thread in a new M6x1 stud, and it won't grab anything.

Is there a special retainer for inside the hood? Is there any chance of replacing it?

If I can't get something inside the hood, what's my best course of action? Just epoxy-ing the new stud in place?

Also curious about this, since I need to replace one of my hood studs as well.

You cannot buy new studs. They are made into the hood.

Fml. Hope I don't have to buy a new hood. One of the nuts is stripped and causes my hood to move around at higher speeds.

When my cowl didn't come with studs, I thought the ones on the oem hood came out a I snapped them. Went to ford and that is what they told me. I took the snapped part to ace hardware and found some studs that fit perfect(in new hood) I don't remember the specs of the stud though. Sorry.

Well I've got an M6x1.0 stud. How did you fasten yours to the hood?

i had to take a piece of 3/16 304 stainless cut it about 5 inches long 3/4 inch wide then measure the distance between the centerline of the holes on the hinge. then mark the piece of stainless drill and tap the two holes. next cut a small slit in the back of the hood inline where the old studs were then insert the piece of stainless with the tapped holes then screw new studs in to the holes then place hood on car and put the nuts on there and put some red locktite on the studs that screw in to the stainless piece of the hood
