Is it possible to take off the inlet manifold without completely taking out all the gubbins bolted on underneath?? i'e can you just release the bolts and let the air chamber and pipes hang down to get at the manifold bolts?

Thank you

You need to undo the bolts for the gubbins underneath and you can slide the plunum off leaving them in situ.

I must warn you, its a hard job removing it. Ideally you need a manual so you know whats bolted on underneath and where all the pipes go.

Good luck and don't forget the plasters.:wavey:

From memory, I thonk you're spot on. Stubby spanners are the tools of choice along with a 1/4" socket set.
