Thanks farmer. Do I need to remove anything else or drain anything? That does sound like a pain in the butt to get to. But its something I should replace I guess

I replaced mine and it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. I already had an EGR delete kit on mine, so I didn't have to worry about the egr tubes. I removed the turbo and it was there in the valley like has already been mentioned. The hard part was getting to it and replacing it because of the plastic cap by the wiring. I could have done that differently, though, and saved myself some trouble.

Make sure everything is really clean down in the valley when you're working. You don't want any debris falling into the hole.

Thanks for the info guys. Where can I find good info about removing my turbo. I don't know if I'm not searching the right spots on the site here. But I can't find good advice anywhere

I replaced my IPR sensor on an 03 without removing the turbo. Not the easiest thing to do, but didn't take that long. Its just a tight fit. I removed intake filter, FICM with bracket, degas bottle and battery. I was going to buy the Ford socket, but made my own out of 1.375" socket machined to fit (I own a bridgeport & lathe). All I did was cut a .675" slot down the length of the socket for the electrical connector and shortened the socket about .375. I used socket, swivel, 4" extension, and socket wrench. Its blind work, but with a mirror and some paitence its doable. I am working Spain for the rest of the month so I can't provide to much more assistance than just reply's.

Thanks steel. I yanked the turbo last night so I'm taking that route. Any advice about removing the EGR tubes. And is there any way around using that special socket for the sensor. Or do I have to fork out the money to ford for one

I got lucky and somebody from work actually has the socket. So I will have both wrench and socket to take it out
