6.0 turbo removal

I need to remove the turbo to get to the egr cooler hose and am having a little trouble getting the turbo off. Can anyone tell me how many bolts hold the turbo on? I only see 3, 2 on left side and one at the rear.

There's 3 bolts, assuming you have an '04.5 up (they are different) then there are 2 on the front, both of which you can use a regular 10mm box end wrench to get to, and the third at the back, which is vertical. I use a 1/4" ratchet and a 4" extension to get on this one, it's a tight squeeze over the y-pipe, but it's doable. Alternatively, you can use an extra long 10mm box end and loosen it from under the passenger side of the downpipe. Use penetrating lube and hose down the turbo inlet V-band clamp as this will save you TONS of time poking at it with prybars etc to get it to un-cake itself, it should just fall off once you lube it. From there use a large prybar and lift the snail off the oil drain and it'll come out, although you'll be cursing me saying "THAT ******* NEVER TOLD ME TO REMOVE THE ALTERNATOR", but if you stick with it, you won't have to.

Hope this helps!
