Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

Success. At last. Thanks for help guys.
Took 7 hours but there were lots of interruptions including of course trips for banjo bolt washers from O'Reilly's late last night and then to the dealer this morning to get what O'Reilly's did not have. Oh, and then the trip to get a 13mm socket that was lost but later turned up where it was supposed to be in the first place.
I have no idea how people could do it in much less if their first time.
Thanks for the tips. They all helped.
My suggestion is - if you are a first timer like me - don't do it unless you are prepared to lose more than a day of other priorities.
Also have various styles of 17mm socket around for the banjo bolt, spare copper washers for that too.
The difficult part was getting the banjo bolt off - not so bad on refitting. Then there was the third bolt on the power steering pump. The one underneath.
I also had trouble lining up the turbo inlet pipe base for refitting. (Doesn't sound much now.) Oh, and I lost the PS bolts down underneath a million times.
The best tip of ALL was on this board where Swedecar said that the extra, larger o-ring supplied with the original pump is for o-t-h-e-r models that need it. My B235E does not but, man, I would have lost a ton of sleep if I'd had that hanging around and I thought I should have put it somewhere.
Thanks Swedecar and Mark.
Love this board!!!
