Default Broken Valve Cover

I snapped just about every Valve cover bolt and I wanted to know if anyone has experience removing broken valve cover bolts

You'll have to get a special tool to extract the broken bolts.

I just did a quick search at Autozone's site for some examples: Bolt Extractor | AutoZone.com

I would also recommend a torque wrench for valve cover bolts, as they snap easily when over torqued.
