When I bought my van a few months ago, it was a tad noisy and put it down to a rotten exhaust, but after much investigation, found the right hand heat exchanger to be bust and after removing all related exhaust bits, I am left with a couple of snapped stud stems that my stud extractor won’t work on; therefore, is there an easy way to remove them without pulling out the engine?

Sadly, I don’t have a big ramp, engine hoist or other means other than a decent set of tools and a gravel drive, so will hopefully have to do it upside down under the van!!



Thanks in advance  :ok

I finally got the engine out yesterday, with my swearing, huffing & puffing and the photo below shows the issue I have.

The stud is there, but because of the shape of the area around the exhaust port, my stud extractor is too wide and fouling as per the witness marks on the head Cry

WHS^^^ find a friendly welder. The heat for the weld does 90% of the work for you.
