Question Distributor Cap Bolts

Hello Everyone,

I'm new to the forum and just bought a 99 civic ex. I found this website while searching for help. Awesome site. Ne ways my questions is I broke 2 distributor cap bolts right in half. The cap is no loose and the thread part that broke is stuck. Will a shop or the dealer be able to punch or drill it out? how much will that cost.

Thank you

A shop should be able to drill it out. Dont go to the dealer, they will overcharge you

lol I would just cut the cap where the bolts are and slip it over the broken bolts, then remove the bolts. Good luck getting a drill in there.
