Re: bolt removal (no_limit_larry)

when trying to remove my factory downpipe, i had a bolt break on me. so how do i remove this stud so i can put in a new downpipe?

can you still grip it with some sort of pliers?
if yes, soak the hell out of the stud with penetrating oil (not wd40) and let it soak good before attempting again. If that doesn't work, try heating it first.
If none of above work....you may need to get it drilled out which may mean having to take the turbo out

be careful and dont break the bolt extractor off inside the bolt like i did cause they are a b*tch to drill out

Not really, they chip easily. just use a small chisel and a hammer.
