Broken Exhaust Manifold Bolt

I have had a squealing noise coming from my engine that i couldn't figure out. I broke down and took it to Ford this afternoon and it turns out to be from a leak on the manifold from a broken bolt. Ford quoted me about $1200 to fix it because they have to pull the cab. I was wondering if there is a way to get the bolt out and replace it without removing the cab.

I have squeeling noise that i haven't been able to pinpoint. And I to have a broken manifold bolt on drivers side rear. Can someone chime in and tell us if that will cause squeeling. Also best way to fix if so.

Is there soot around it? Me and the ford tech diagnosed it as coming from there. Sorry if that was unclear in my original post.

6.4s come with exhaust manifold gaskets that will act like a reed when exhaust leaks past them. Remember the exhaust pressure is pretty high in a 6.4. Two turbos and a lot of EGR flow dictate that.

it doesn't get any harder than 6.4 manifolds. I haven't done a set for a while but I have pulled cabs in the past for these. I have also had to pull the heads and set them on the bench to extract the studs.
