    2005 Ford Explorer XLT
    I am working on my 2005 Ford Explorer XLT to change the fuel pressure and temperature sensor which is under the upper half of the intake manifold.

    Based on what I have discovered, there are 8 total T30 Torx head bolts securing the upper half of the intake manifold.

    I managed to get off 6 of them easily.

    Leaving 2 of them still, which got stripped.

    One of them I was able to get out with a screw extractor...

    The last one (#8) is the one in the very back near the firewall.

    I think I gave it too strong of a crank and I must have not been perfectly centered on it.

    I don't know my options, because there is much less room to work with than the other one that was stripped.

    Suggestions?
