Default F150 Exhaust leak

My dad has had an exhaust leak on his 01 XLT for about a year now. Ford wanted like 1800 to fix it because the bolts snap and need to be tapped. Any suggestions on what we should do? I know its FRF but we need help and I dont know who else to ask...thanks

how is the bolt snapped ? if there is a decent amount of it showing you may be able to weld a nut onto it and take it out that way

No theyre not snapped now the f150s are notorious for then breaking when you take the manifold off. Thats why the repairs so expensive

Are you talking on the head side or on the down pipe side...?

And has that got the 5.4/4.6...? Should have aluminum heads so the bolts shouldn't be impossible to get out.

In any event I would lube them down with PB Blaster for a week, maybe twice a day even for a week.

There also is this stuff I have heard of, can't remember the name but it goes on ice cold then heats up, I guess its kinda like icy hot lol
