Head gasket change advice
#1
Going to be changing the head gasket and the turbo at the weekend on the hdi


 Just need a bit of advice from some one who's done this before . 

I know the head bolt torque  settings in Haynes is wrong 

Is it turbo/exhaust off first and then  carry on with the HG or can you undo  all the head bolts and lift the head/turbo/inlet as one? 

Obviously if taking the turbo off, subframe off

Done plenty of he's before, just would appreciate what order things need to be done in to save some time

You'll find if you're doing the turbo its easier to lift the lot...its just ruddy heavy

Is there space to lift the head off with the turbo attatched?

Pretty sure i've pulled a head off with the manis and turbo still attached before, think i had to drop it off the top mount, i'd get a mate to help you lift it though.
