300tdi exhaust manifold.

Postby BioDisco » Wed 30 Sep 2009 8:27 pm

Hi all
I need to fit a new gasket seal to cure my leaking one and stop getting fumes in my cab, What i want to know is can i remove the manifold complete with turbo or do i have to removed to turbo from the manifold first? Is it a fairly easy job to change the gasket seal's? I realise the worst bit will be the rusted nut's to remove.

Hi Mark, you'll need to remove the turbo & manifold in one piece. Its not a very difficult job, but some of the nuts & bolts are difficult to see. I'd imagine the whole job could be done in around 2 /3 hours depending on your DIY skills.
Good luck..Robert.

Go buy yourself to a suitable surface drive socket. These have 6 lobes, rather than 12 splines, and therefore bear more on the flat of the nut than the corners.
Get a spray can of good luck whilst you're at it....

Hi guys, Thanks for the advise! I do have a set of sockets with 6 lobes so I'm praying they all come off without too much trouble, I recently fit a de-cat front pipe and the 3 nuts to the manifold came off without much trouble.

regards Mark.

Well got the job done today without any problems, All the nuts came off easily! The old gasket was well shot, So not hopefully no more fumes in the cab!
