    Exhaust bolt broke when replacing my torque strut mount. It seems to have a rounded piece on the back of it and it might welded to they exhaust. Do I need to drill it out or what are my options?

    Pic would help, but it sounds like you’re talking about a stud in an exhaust flange. Those can be just press-fitted or tack welded. Easiest approach is remove the pipe, secure the flange against a vise anvil, etc., get the flange hot, and beat out the stud with a big-ass hammer.
    If it’s welded, you may need to drill it out.

    Is it safe for me to do this while it is attached to the vehicle?
