hi ian,you need to take off all the pipe work above it but you prop have done that already,then you need to remove 3 bango bolts which are the water feed and oil feed one of which is under the turbo easier to get to from under the car move them out the way remove the bolts from the manifould 4 of,then remove your down pipe its easier that way only 3 bolts,then pull that bad boy out the way.oops forgot to say have a tray under the car to catch the oil from the turbo.:wave:

soz ian havent replied buzy.you only loose water and oil which is left over from in the turbo very little realy but you dont want oil on the floor do you.once fitted bk on fill water up if needed and oil if needed again,then pull the plug off the advance timing cover try turn the car over it wont let you keep doing it till the red oil light goes out then reconect the plug and away you go.:wave:
