Should only take 5 mins.

Are you replacing it with exactly the same, or an aftermarket one?

Hi Highlander - No its standard. I must have been doing something seriously wrong then. The problem was getting access to the old unit. Even after removing the heat sheild surrounding the turbo we still couldnt get on the bottom nut.

Then i saw that one of the outlet pipes (or inlet?!?) was at a differant angle and meant I didnt have enough room to fit the rubber piping onto it as it was up flush against a metal pipe so had to undo the bracket and hold the pipes to one side while trying to thread the tube on.

Would be very interest to know where ive gone wrong as Im just starting out working with cars and would appreciate any advice if you have replaced one of these yourself...

Its all good now though and running like a charm!

It's really a matter of having the right tool(s) for the job. A wafer thin socket, knuckle joint, various extension bars etc.

Much the same as changing the plugs - a choice of the right length extension bars can mean it takes 20 minutes instead of 2 hours.
