Re: (phuz)

Whoa, if Stoyan is struggling with this, it *must* suck. Good luck man, I have no idea.

Wait, can you get something sharp up in there to cut a slice throught the hose where it's stuck to the turbo? I've done this before (not for this car). If so, and then you can yank it out, if you think you'll be able to push on the new line once the old one is off.

Re: (EAX)

When I was looking for a dropped torx bit, I was able to get comfortable on top of the motor, laying down across it. I literally pulled my self right over the turbo by pulling on the engine bar. From that vantage point I could stick my arm down past the turbo easily. Have you tried this? Plus, it gives new meaning to "loving your R".


If you have a mirror, you can put it on the ground, so you can see the underside of what you're grabbing for. And it increases the R love as one would expect

Re: (EAX)

Kinda sounds like ur gonna need to talk to someone with a lift. Jackstands will let u under it, but makes the hose too far away from you, huh? How about some stupid-long needle-nose pliers? Ive seen some that would have to reach. Also, you could remove the lower mount if thats the only thing in the way. Good luck, and let me know if you need to make a parts run and ur R is non-driveable.
