Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required.

Replaced intake
Putting new dorman intake
While putting throttle body snapped one bolt off
Three remain
How to fix or leave aloneNote dorman is plastic with ferrels where bolt broke
Expert:  TECHPRO49 replied 2 months ago.

You should able to drill that out, just make sure no shavings get into the intake, you have to be dead center though and its a one time shot, make sure to punch the center before drilling, they have left handed bit kits for that and if your luckey it will pull the bolt out while your drilling

Should I try and leave it
Seems really snug with just the three bolts?
Expert:  TECHPRO49 replied 2 months ago.

if your not getting any vacuum leaks and shes runs ok that is a option too. Worse case is you have some running problems and you have to drill it out later.

Let me know how it works out
