Hi there,

Any tips regarding removing the outlet manifold on the 2.0? Is it a job for a novice?

Thanks!

exhaust manifold nuts onto the head is easy, getting the nuts that fix the down pipe onto manifold, not so :-(

easier if you have access under neath then you can 'drive-on' the best fitting socket and use LONG extensions, note that the size may 'not' be metric, six sided is best

the inlet manifold comes away at the same time though ;)
