For an issue like this, you should consider hiring the help of a professional with the repair. An experienced technician will be able to tell if the stud can be removed or if it is a part of the housing. If the threads on the stud are still ok, you may be able to get away with just buying a new nut. Our fleet of mobile experts are prepared and trained to help you with the replacement of your thermostat housing.
