Trying to replace the 2nd turbo since its blown on my car and the 3 bolts that hold the downpipe to the turbo. I was able to break 2 loose and get those off but the third one, which has the least room, is stripped. It was a pretty beat up bolt before. The guy I bought it from had a downpipe at one time so it kinda looked like he was struggling with it too but then put the same bolt back on. I put a 14mm on it and its toast now...


ANY SUGGESTIONS??? HELP

You can remove the stud using a torx socket, and it will come out together with the bolt. Torx socket (female) number 10, I believe. Soak it in Liquid Wrench, let it sit for 10 minutes, soak again, 10 minutes and then pop it off with the torx socket and a long extension. A friend would help, he could hold the socket firmly on so it doesn't slip and/or strip.
