Inakte manifold removal tips?

Postby awdmofo » Wed Jul 13, 2016 7:42 pm

Removing my head to replace hopefully just the head gasket, now its time to remove the intake manifold. I know there are two bolts on the back of the manifold hooked to the braces that attach to the engine. Need any tips as to how to get the intake manifold off. thanks.

Take the wiring harness off first. Get the manifold supports through the tie rod holes. They were a bitch on my car so I left them off.

The wires around/under the manifold? You don't mean the fuel rail right? I just unclipped the injectors last night trying to see where all the bolts were on the manifold. You mean from under the car when you say tie rod holes? Whats the point of them? does the manifold flex that much that it needs support from the motor?

Finally got the turbo and exhaust manifold off, getting at the intake manifold soon. Any other tips on where to start and how to get to the bolts on the back? :shrug:
