Rear Exhaust Manifold Stud

While under the hood of my recently purchased 97 TJ 2.5, I discovered two missing bolts or studs in the exhaust manifold. Numbers 4 and 6 are missing. I tried to take a picture but can not tell if these broke off or are just not there any longer. How can I determine if they are broke off without having to dissemble a large number of things? I was able to stick my pinky finger in hole #6 a decent amount and same with #4.

Thanks for any help or guidance.

Take a small screwdriver and stick in the hole to find out, and if I remember correctly #6 is a threaded stud that a bolt attaches too. Hope its not broken but have read its common to snap off.
