I am not endorsing any product nor do I have any affiliation to any company that
supplies or manufactures tools. I am not recommending any particular method or tool
to carry out any process, removal or insertion of a component. This WEB link details
my experiences and methods used to successfully remove the fractured part of the
stud remaining in the cylinder block. Glad that’s out of the way.
First and foremost this is not a quick job and it requires lots of patience. It
is unlikely that it could be completed over a weekend - unless you are lucky.
Be prepared and plan what tools you will require to complete the job. Set achievable
and realistic objectives for the day and do not rush it to catch up if you fall behind.
I consider any stage after the removal of the turbo as a ‘one way street’ as you
become committed to succeed or fail .
Make sure that all removed items can be stored safely in a clean dry area. In the
engine compartment cover any holes, orifices, pipes as they become exposed to prevent
foreign objects or material from entering e.g. swarf from drilling, broken drill
