need help removing turbo.

I have a early build 03 6.0L Is there 3 bolts holding the turbo on the pedestal. I found where 2 of em is. I acessed one from the drivers side easy to get two , and the one from the passenger side which was missing. I cannot find the third one. I have everything unhooked and the turbo is still solid can only wiggle it just a tad. I took a flash light and felt all around the back and cannot feel where there could be another bolt. I need to get this turbo off so I can start on the egr delete.

03 F350 cc long box single rear wheel. with mbrp straight pipe, sct xcal 2 and edge evo as gauges.
Fass fuel system, power elbow, and zoodad mod.
And running on homemade Biodiesel during the warm months. innovatives and djs tunes. Egr delete and stage 1 fuel lines.

The other bolt is on the back side and you can't see it. You will have to feel around. Here is what needs to be removed to get the turbo out.

There are 3 mounting bolts that hold it to the pedestal. Take the black push pins out of the cowl panel that hold the plastic wire loom in place. You need to remove the up pipe clamp, exhaust downpipe clamp, passenger side intercooler tube, oil fill tube from passenger side valve cover and reinstall the oil fill cap only, removed black air intake tube that connects to turbo, removed oil supply line and the 3 mounting bolts that hold turbo to pedestal. Work the turbo back and forth and raise up. You will have to turn it a little sideways and play around but it will come out. Hope that helps out a little.
