    So the long bolt that holds the oil filter cover (top right bolt if looking at the cover) was missing when I bought my 2005. The cover is tight and does not leak oil- or appear to have leaked oil in the past. Anyways- the seller gave me the impression the bolt was just missing. So I ordered a new bolt and when I tried to put it in-- it was clear that the threads were broken off. This bolt is quite long and there is plenty of room to thread the hole and tap a new - shorter screw into it. Just want to get thoughts on if this would be a good way to fix this. I dont want to continue with only 2 bolts holding the oil filter cover.

    Thanks

    That might be an okay way to do it. I'd pull the side cover off and see if you can get a grab on the bolt then. Preferably have a shop drill it and tap it, as it goes pretty deep and I wouldn't trust myself on that one.

    Doesn't that bolt function as a part of the oil galley system?

    Not sure that bolt has any function - other than snugging the oil filter cover tight.

    The bottom bolt is a functional bolt as it allows oil to drain from filter etc.

    THis bolt is inserted in a channel cast on the outside of the crankcase.

    This is not a problem for me ... Just, sorry for my translation!

    jpscott,



    Have you pulled the side cover off or done a depth measurement to determine where the bolt is broken? I would agree with assquatch's idea.

    If it is broken deeper than that but not too deep then maybe try a left-handed drill bit and a screw extractor?
