Absolute nightmare job, took two of us about three days at 1st attempt.

You need to strip all the inlet pipework down

Undo down pipe

disconnect oil and coolant fittings which is a nightmare

Undo the turbo to exhaust manifold bolts, some are tricky and you'll need a few different length spanners to get at some of them!

Push the turbo's down enough to get a socket which you will need a universal joint on to undo the manifold bolts. Remove manifolds then youll be able to get turbo's out.

Plan on something going wrong! If you need the car for work monday and you've never done it before think very carefully before starting!

Oh make sure you've got all the gaskets you'll need. You probably won't know about half of them untill you've stripped it. Gaskets cost over £120 alone!

Overall not a nice job!

I've got some pics of access if you want to see them?
