    stripped exhaust manifold bolt

    I have a stripped exhaust manifold bolt on a 04 gtx 4tec. I have tried everything I know of and everything they sell at sears. I HATE TORX BOLTS. Has anybody ever run into this, if so how did you get it out. Its one of the bolts on bottom btw. One slip of socket and its stripped.

    I bought an Irwin brand socket remover but it just spins off.

    Pull the head with exhaust manifold on and then remove Mani.
    Why are you removing manifold anyway?

    Get a real pair of visegrip not chincy needle nose ones who cares either it comes off or you break head off once manifold is off then u have access to screw if you pull the head be prepared for more time and money

    I had a problem with a bolt on a RXP-X.I move the engine so I can drill the bolts head and pull the manifold out!

    right thats the next step pull pump drive shaft and take the motor mounts off or bolts losely leave mounts on hull with shims alone just remove bolt on tops of rubber mounts then u might be able to cut the head of bolt off

    That worked for me!Once I get the bolts off I pull the motor a little to make enough room for my dremel tool!
