turbo up pipe removal

help some one please, how the fcuk do you get into the most awkward nut on the turbo up pipe(turbo end,three nuts)
got two off which were pretty tight even with a breaker bar, but last one looks like a spanner job
do i need to remove cat downpipe first?
only reason i need it off is because i can hear exhaust blowing some where in there

in picture it is the nut on right
any advice welcome and greatly sought after

take your downpipe off first m8e. the flage of the downpipe is what is stopping you getting onto it.

if your exhaust is blowing, i'd be checking around the turbo its self m8e. they are known to crack. if you look at your turbo you'll see a clamp near the middle, look along the side of this clamp and you might see the soot from a crack in the exhaust housing.

i have a cracked one at work, i'll take a pic tomorrow morning

thanks for reply , the crack as you say makes sense as it sounds as if it is blowing underneath turbo, i will check it out anyway,
is the exhaust side made of cast- in other words could it be welded. the reason i ask is because the turbo is running well appart from the small rasp noise.
thanks again H

no pint welding it m8, the crack in next to a strap and once you weld it you probably wont get the strap back on. also you'd have to strip the turbo.
