Found three broken exhaust manifold studs (hemi)
Found three broken studs today. The ones that hold the shield on the back portion of the manifolds. Looks like I will be pulling those off this week. It looks like a pita on the driver side. Any tips? Not looking forward to this repair
What chassis is this on? To answer your question, yes, let a co-worker do the job. Actually, both sides are a PITA, no matter which chassis you're dealing with. No real secrets, but the biggest problem might be getting the broken studs out. If it's a WK, you might try removing the plastic inner fender well. It doesn't help much, but does a little. Also, moving all the electrical stuff in the engine compartment (FCM and Fuse Panel) gives you a little more room to work. Best to just take your time, and try not to swear too much.

Wk btw. Don't think they're warped yet. IM not really hearing an exhaust leak yet. Won't hurt to send them off to get milled though. Not looking forward to this one. Have to do my front pinion mount diff bushing also. Probly be a whole days work at the shop, on my day off! Oh well
