Intake Manifold Bolt Hole Welded Shut


Recommended Posts

I was installing my new manifold when one of the bolts broke off half way through. I did the standard drill the bolt out and attempt to retap the hole. Well i drilled to low and had to weld the hole shut so I could redrill the correct position of the hole. I can't for some reason get the bit to catch almost tempted to resort to a diamond tipped bit to see if that would go through. Also the hole was stick welded shut.What should i do to redrill and retap this hole?

      My 2014 has an exhaust smell in the cabin which is more noticeable when idling. I read online that the exhaust manifolds crack. Well today I’m getting into this and it’s a bitch. The secondary air injection is in the way on this model to access the exhaust manifold heat shield. 
      Finally got the heat shield of and can see a crack...

      Now trying to remove and replace it. Got the O2 sensor out and it’s in bad shape!

      recently i have purchased the con rod bearings for client's  renault master van 2 2004 and was my fault that i selected the incorrect size, my client needed oversize and we noticed that too late when the parcel arrived (pretty fast by the way). I contacted their support and was so lucky since they agreed to exchange the items even after fact that i open the wrapper  guys are awesome, promised to thank them again and share my story with forum visitors.  They have account on ebay http://stores.ebay.co.uk/ASVELA-Parts  and can be reached in chat, this feature is at their direct site shop.asvela.com  . I will be so gladly glad if my experience helps others to contact the most reliable seller on autoparts market ! 
      Please share your thoughts in comments, would be so interesting to  get acquainted!🙂

      Hello there.  Apologies if this is the wrong thread.  Please feel free to move...
      Found this manifold (exhaust?) left behind in a storage locker.  Curious what it might be worth and where I might be able to sell it...? Any suggestions? 
      Thanks
