4.7 Driver side back header bolts broken

Anyone ever tackle this on their own? Got a good friend who is a 20+ year jeep mechanic (who is unfortunately 8 hours away) who said it's easy, just use a LH drill bit.....unless you f' up the threads....yeahhhhhh.......
If youve taken it in, what was the $$ and or hours?

Thanks!!

Jeff

Re: 4.7 Driver side back header bolts broken

Back header bolts..?..headers or a stock exhaust manifold? If stock mani, there's a DIY on jeepforum.com on a WK 4.7L where he had to replace a snapped manifold bolt...nice write up with pictures.

Re: 4.7 Driver side back header bolts broken

I had a manifold bolt break on the 4.7 in my dakota pickup. I was able to work the broken bolt out by hand and install a new one.
