A brass screw broken off and left in a trunk lid where once it was one of 5 screws holding firmly one of two hinges, can be quite a daunting task to remove without leaving a large hole in its place.

The remainder of the screw head is too short  and too soft to grab with a pair of vice grips and turn to remove from the wood.

To remove the screw, slice a slot in the top protruding section with a dremmell cut off wheel.

Cut the slot deep enough to snugly fit a screwdriver tip.

Keep a firm downward pressure on the screw as you begin to turn.

Continue to firmly and slowly turn the screw, being careful not to break the thin edge walls of the screw slot you have created.

Carefully turn the screw until it has been removed.
