Common causes of bad smoking?
#15
Well im not going to lie it wasn't the funnest thing I have ever done haha.

The first thing I did this time was remove the drivers side wheel, then find where the turbo inlet is and remove the single 10mm bolt on the front of the turbo that holds the intake pipe onto it.

Then under the bonnet you want to remove the top half of the air box (ease of access really)

Remove the breather pipe from the top of the engine and the metal intake pipe (use a pair of those long handled pliars for this to remove the spring holder things. Then break the seal with a flat head screw driver if needed.)

Now you will need to get your hand down the back of the inlet elbow. On the bottom of it you will find a rubber hose that is clamped on with a jubilee clamp. If your in luck the bolt on the jubilee will be facing the rear or the right rear of the engine bay. That way you can get your arm down there with a 7mm spanner and gradually undo it about a quarter of a turn at a time Smile

Once that is loose you want to remove the two allen bolts from where the EGR joins to the inlet elbow. Then the two 13mm bolts that hold the elbow to the manifold. And then there is a single 10mm that holds the intake metal pipe to the inlet elbow. You will need to remove this so you can move the elbow around. (Some HDI's may have an air doser as well which you will need to remove a bolt from. I haven't got this so I can't comment)

Once that is all loose with a lot of wiggling and pulling you should be able to remove it from the rubber hose and the intake manifold.

Do what you need to do with it off and then just do the opposite to put it back together. To re connect the turbo intake pipe I find that it was a lot easier to bolt it on the turbo side first and then bolt it to the inlet elbow second Smile
