EA81 people-HELP!- exhaust manifold to head bolts...subaru tool? how to remove?
Posted 30 March 2007 - 07:54 AM
Last summer I hit something with my brat, and broke an "ear" on the EGR manifold where it bolts to the head.
The two bolts that hold it to the head are strange, and seem to be larger than 13mm......but a 14mm is sloppy.
There are also "TORX" slots in the center of each bolt.
I cant get a socket (even if I had a 13 & 1/2mm) straight on the bolt heads, because the lower flange of the EGR manifold sticks out too far!
Im thinking that this must call for a "special" subaru tool?
My crappy but enlightening ms paint diagram can be seen here:
Thanks for any help!

I guess that creativity is just gonna have to be the key to this baby. BFvicegrips and the mapp gas torch might just do it.
