I just took off my leaking Drivers side exhaust manifold because of 2 rear broken bolts. Got the bolts out but I have to grind the manifold on the 2 center ports to make all 4 flat across. How common is this and how even do they have to be???

Had to grind the 2 center ports. Nice and quiet now...
@ricks;

Next time you any kind of job like this, take some pictures and post them with your narrative; The write up is helpful but a picture is worth a thousand words, as the saying goes; Particularly for those who might not be as mechanically inclined and may not know exactly what to look for.

It was tight in there. Had to remove the battery, battery tray and all the fuse boxes to get in there. Lots of wire harnesses to move around too.

I'll be in there this weekend. Did the passenger side last year, and that's apparently easier than the driver's side.

Looking forward to it :cautious:

I have to do the passenger side soon. Noticed it leaking when cold starting. I hope it's easier than the drivers side.

I'm also looking to remove the muffler and pipe it. The flange will cost like 60 bucks tho... $60 for a flange is ridiculous!!! I wish there was a cheaper way.

Might need t support the pipe more. The weight on the back of the header is usually what causes the warping/bolt damage. Did not do it on my passenger side but will likely on the driver's side

When this happened to my Commander I immediately brought it to the nearest auto repair shop.
Some of us like to do the work on our vehicles ourselves.
