    Well, While washing my engine cover, and putting it back on. i sheered off the left side bolt (facing the truck)

    The right side bolt is still intact and holding it on, but i would still like to keep the cover and be able to have the left side bolt intact.

    Any easy fix to this?

    I may just buy the TRD CAI. That Wasn't looking at buying it for a while but now i may have no choice.

    the engine cover is just that...there's no need to even run it at all. the fix would be replacing that bolt

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    I would call your insurance company, they may just salvage the truck and pay for a new one.

    Easy out wont help much.. Isnt it actually a nut on a stud? Looks like he broke the stud off. What you will have to do is remove that brass thread insert and stud and find a replacement insert and stud. Just I would worry about cracking what the stud is in.. You may be better off just getting some dum dum and stick the remainder you broke off in there just so it looks better..

    you guys are way over complicating this...there is enough of that bold sticking out, grab some vice grips and back it out.

    But its not a bolt. It looks like a stud formed in the brass insert. The best you will do is twist out the whole brass insert.

    How would buying TRD CAI help with the bolt situation??? I don't get it.

    As others said vice grips should get it out.

    If it was me, I wouldn't even worry about it... The engine cover is a POS anyways, just take it off. Weight savings FTW...LOL

    Can't really tell, dispite the huge pics, i have the 2.7 and my inserts like that have bolts that go into them, not studs standing up. However my engine cover is the intake on the 2.7 so it may be different.

    It's a stud that i sheered off while tightening the nut, sorry for the confusion. And a CAI would replace the current air intake (which the stud is protruding from).

    I will probably just go ahead and do that, gives me an excuse to give the wife anyway... LOL

    Here's a pic from further away. I tightened the other side with some force and this one sheered off incredibly easily, it felt as if the nut wasn't even all the way on.

    meh.

    well if you want to fix it, easy way would be to cut the remaining stud off, drill a new hole and tap it. Then replace the stud with a bolt.

    Those bolts only get about 8 ft-bls of torque. Snug is good.

    IIRC those studs are threaded on both ends - therefore you should be able to grab it with a pair of vise grips and unscrew it. I had mine out once before, and it was threaded on both ends.
