Requesting advice. I am in the middle of 4-part job on my daughter's 2006 sport combi:
1) Repair CHMSL (high mount brake light) w. new LED's - DONE
2) New EVAP solenoid/check valve/hose assembly - DONE
3) Turbo to exhaust manifold gasket - PROBLEM w studs =(
4) Re-replace the NAPA/Felpro front crank seal (all I could get same day) I can let this go if I have too, it's okay for now.
I have 2 left side Turbo studs out, but the other two are stubborn ! Evaluating my options, so opinions are welcome, and experience even more so !! I was hoping to do this without removing the turbo from its cooling and oil lines.
I will try not to touch the exhaust manifold gasket and studs, because it is not leaking now, and I don't want to deal w. broken studs. I bought this car about 3 1/2 years ago. When I replaced motor mounts I discovered two of them were really bad, and the turbo support brace was broken. I suspect this contributed to the leak between the exhaust manifold and the turbo.
1) Anyone ever trim out the gasket and slot it on the outer edge to slide it into place ? With the 2 left studs out, and the nuts off the other two I could try this (cutting the old gasket out will be a pain).
2) Is my best route just to bite the bullet and fully remove the turbo - risking leaks for oil and coolant that are not there now ?
3) Any other thoughts beside these two options ??
