Shower Valve Stem
 
How do you remove valve stem after nut broke off from over tightening?

Make, model, picture?
There's dozens of differant styles without some info hard to tell you how to fix it.

It's Gerber I believe. Hot side of a bathtub faucet. I had finished replacing the rubber washer and was re-installing the stem. After turning water supply back on, there was a drip forming where nut meets valve body and I twisted the nut off trying to tighten. The threads remain in the valve body keeping the washer end of the stem from coming out. I would like to remove the threaded end of the nut so I can replace with a new one or the entire stem assembly.
