...I mean the one on the bottom of the turbo. I know some people have done it so I tried doing it the other night with no luck. How the hell do you pull that sucker out. I am able to get to the spring clamp but no way I can squeze it with my fingers or fit a tool back there to pull it out. The biggest PITA I have ever had to deal with on my car, considering that I have changed springs, installed swaybars, custom fmic, downpipe, exhaust.... and many other things my self but this is a real PITA. It is just so hard to get to it. I don't thing the Swedes have thought about replacing thta thing unless you pull the turbo out. I had a buddy pushing the engine to the front so I can get more room back there - no dice.
Any ideas/advices would be much appreciated!
Thanks much!

Re: (phuz)

Matt, Joe, I had the car up in the air on a stand and there was no way to get to it from underneath the fiting is between the bottom of the turbo and the transmission mount. The only way to reach it is from the top.

Re: (JoeLvo)

Haha, I did give my R a lot of love the other night. Good thing my wife wasn't around then.

I am able to reach the clamp but can't get a good grip of it to pull it out. I even got my arms all scratched from trying real hard.

P.S. Thanks for the sms

Re: (Chilled Man)

Thanks Chilled Man!


Got it! All done! Removing the intake hose is the key.
It's a bit more work but it does give you a lot more room around the damn thing.

Thanks all of you guys for jumping in with suggestions and ideas!
