I need to drill out and replace the #7 exhaust stud as well and the exhaust and turbo gaskets.
Right now the turbo is out, the exhaust is off, and I will have to drill and EZ Out the remains of the stud so that I can replace it.
a) With 140K on this car, I would LIKE to replace all the studs. I am not rebuilding - this will be done in the car, hopefully not allowing any added scope creep =). Should I replace ALL or only broken one ?
b) If I do go for replacing all of the studs, what steps beside PB Blaster would help me minimize chances of breaking another stud ?
Thanks in advance ! I have new studs on order .

P.S. reminder that this is a 2006 Sport Combi. I will replace all the turbo studs, but I have the Turbo out on a bench, so it's easier.
