How do you remove a broken head bolt?


I would centre punch mark the centre of the broken stud and with a drill stand, drill a hole down the whole length of the stud, getting larger and larger as I change the bits. When I reach the last threads peel the thread out using a pick. If the thread is damaged, drill oversized to tape to fit a Hellicoil.
The largest Essex Engine was 3.4litre V6, not 3.8. The most common was the 3.0litre fitted to the Zodiac and Capri. It was a V4 with two more pistons and uses the same head bolts etc.

FORD CAPRI 1990


My wife had a mid 80's capri and the latch/release button was on the drivers side door pillar at the back of the door near the bottom of the pillar, the door had to be open to see it, there was a second one that we only found when selling the car on the bottom of the drivers side door arm rest. Not sure if that helps as yours is newer but it might give you a couple of more places to start. On my son's Mercury Topaz you have to open the glovebox and push a semi=concealed button on the right..Those lovely engineers at Ford! lol...
