u should be able to get it off just useing normal sockets, extended sockets, and extension bars. A good tommy bar might be a good idea if they are really tight. Make sure you remove the fan for maximum room to work in. No quite sure why you are takeing the studs out of the head? Theres no need to do that if you are just removing the turbo.
Make sure you have soaked the nuts in a good ant sieze spray like plus gas. Dont be stingy with it!
well, when i sent mine off i took everything off. I kept all the hoses, removed the elbow, and while it was off i actualy replaced the manifold gasket (which i think is a good idea anyway), and the water pipe as it had started to look a bit knackered, and you have to remove the turbo to get it off anyway.
metal oil pipe from rear of block with braded bit on 90423164
oil return to sump 90423394
gasket turbo to down pipe 90423425
rad to turbo 90423310
can't see the turbo to header tank pipe
outlet gasket 90423026
YEP!!! The bottom stud and nut is missing and theres no nut on the top one cos the stud is snapped. not totaly flush but someone decided not to put the nut back on.
I've got them all off now.
Next step. It would seem that all of the jubilee clips holding the Air intake pipes from the Bottom of the turbo to the bottom of the Intercooler are knackered and i can't remove them. I'm thinking of just cuttingthem (carefully) with a junior hacksaw blade. Does anyone have a better suggestion.
Also, How do i remove the Intercooler and radiator?
you could do that for a last resort, or have you tried a socket on them? Give em a squirt with WD40. Not sure about the intercooler mate, but id like to know myself as i think it could do with a good clean.
