My new hypothesis being that it is a boxed structure and if the studs break, you have to cut the box structure open to repair the studs. It seems I will also have to do this, so I would like to see how this area should look like.

Based on the photos, is it possible to cut the sheet metal of the floor, to gain access from the top? Looking down into the V shape, I mean.

Yes, I checked and you are quite right, it would be possible to do that. But you would need to be very careful when calculating where to cut.

Here is a picture of the left side cut open from below. You can see the threaded holes from the inside (in the picture there is still a broken bolt in one of the threads). It would seem that, at least on this car, the correct size is 3/8 coarse bolts that are just screwed through the hangar into these threaded holes.
