Question Drivers side exhaust manifold

I've developed an exhaust leak and found my furthest back bolt broken off on the drivers side exhaust manifold. Anyone ever done this job before? Any pointers? I plan to start on this the first of next week since I'm out of town this weekend. Looks fairly easy as long as I can get that bolt out.

Just in case anyone has read this, here's an update: I finally got the manifold off last night. Would've been an easy job if it wasn't for another bolt that I had to pop the head off of. Hopefully I'll have it all back together tonight. Oh, if anyone else ever has a broken bolt, there's room behind the manifold to try to get it out and replace it. Sure wish I'd known that before a went through all this!!

Put it on yesterday with no issues. Going on a trip this weekend in it, we'll see what difference it makes.

same bolt for me

looks like you had a bunch of replies! anyway I have the same bolt that broke of at the head. Did you take the inner fender off to better access the bolt and could you have done this by not removing the manifold?
Thanks, Eric

I did take my inner fender out, it comes out real easy. I really think I could've gotten a small pair of channel locks behind it and gotten the bolt out. And don't worry about the factory gasket being messed up, there wasn't one there from the factory.

Did you get the bolt out without having to remove the whole manifold?

just ran into a bad manifold gasket on my truck. isnt it nice having such an overwhelming rush of replies... ha

I was curious if you had enough room under there to get the manifold off and slip in a new gasket assuming the bolts dont all get ignorant and break.

thanks in advance

If it does have a gasket it's been worked on before and hopefully had some anti-seize put on the bolts. From what I remember you had room to loosen the manifold and replace the gasket. Just remove the tire and inner fender.
