snapped bolt in the oil feed for the turbo

I got 2 bolts mixed up that were the same except in length. Of course I put one too long into the snap to fit connection for the oil feed on my turbo. I snapped it. I tried the craftsman screw extraction tool with no luck. Any ideas????

That sucks!! Most auto parts stores sell a reverse cut drill bit. A lot of times you can use that and when it gets down in there a little ways it will catch and extract the screw. If not then you can use an EZ-out tool to try to get it out.

How bad of an idea would it be to just jb weld it back together and then just try to find another oil cooler cover and replace the cover and oil line later????

fix it right or dont bother fixing it at all dont just throw some crap together and patch the problem actually fix it or take it to a shop but get it done right and jb weld is not the right way to fix that problem that should be reserved for emergeny use only and for the shortest amount of time possible

I agree. I'd rather fix it right but I cannot get it out at all and I need it to get to work tomorrow. And spending 400+ on a new oil cooler just bc this bolt is not what I want to do. Do you think the jb weld would hold the oil line??

Is there any bolt still sticking out? If not, and the extractor won't work you may have to drill and retap the hole. Good luck!
