    snapped manifold stud

    Got a snapped manifold stud on my SRI-T and ive been told a few different ways of fixing it.

    Does anyone know any places in south mids where i can take the car to get it drilled out or something? any recommendations welcome.

    If you have a stud remover or you can do it yourself then please get in contact, i will travel to you and i will pay

    thankyou

    Not that hard to get a stud out mate, they shouldn't be on THAT tight

    Get a drill bit smaller than the snapped stud, drill right into the middle, and get an Easy out left hand thread drill bit.

    its more the fact that i'm not confident enough taking the turbo/manifold off and all the bits that go with it to access the stud, plus i dont really have the tools which is why i'm offering someone moneys to do it for me :P

    That's fair enough mate.

    If you were up my neck of the woods I'd have given you a hand

    It could be a nightmare, if the stud has snapped at an angle the drill bit can be a bitch to try and keep in the centre. I've had it slip sideways and try to drill itself in to the head instead.
    If you are to do it yourself use a battery drill on a slow speed and you should be ok.

    To BE honest if it isn't blowing or causing a problem i would leave it, until it does
    But the chances are it won't

    Centrepunch til there is a slight dint

    Start with the smallest drill bit you've got and get larger and larger.
