Check it out on their website. Looks like it will work. If anyone has tried it, let me know.

Might be worth a shot. It looks like it clamps on the head and the nut tightens down on the hole in the manifold with a broken bolt. Simple and quick fix before you ruin the gasket or manifold.

Looks like I'll be ordering some, I just looked today and I have the rear bolt head on the driver and passenger side gone.

I've put these on a several months ago and put on several thousand clicks since. Initially they were ok but maybe my gasket was a bit too far gone. She still has the sound at start up but it goes away faster when you warm the vehicle up and then you can no longer hear it. I think I'm going to pony up for the real repair *gulp*

Hey lbrowne,

If you want to consider heading to one of our dealers for the repair I would be happy to look into pricing for you. Please feel free to PM me your VIN and relevant information along with the thread and I will let you know what I come up with.
