Exahust gaskets on the driver side ?s

Hey I'm going to change my exahust gaskets on the driver side today and I was wondering if anyone has any advice. I normally just dig into stuff until I figure it out, but I figured I could see if anyone has n e tips or tricks, my cylinder on the far back is the one leaking

You talking about the manifold? From the factory there are no gaskets at the head or up pipe connection. If someone has installed a manifold gasket, you just unbolt it from the head and up pipe and pull it away. However, these bolts have a tendency to break so soak them several times with a pb blaster or similar. Often the rear bolt is broken anyway so I would get a new pack of bolts from the dealer. The up pipe will move a little, so don't yard on it too much, the seal at the top is mediocre at best.

I don't guess someone has installed them, but it leaks a good bit around that back one, so should I check to make shure the bolt has not broke before I buy the gaskets
