Do you need to pull turbo to remove fuel bowl

My 95 OBS fuel bowl leaks and im gonna pull it and rebuild it, after watching some videos it looks like everyone pulls the turbo. Is that necessary or does it just make it easier?

Well the fuel pump is connected to the bowl right? and the lines run under the turbo so you need the turbo out to get to those lines right? or can i take the fuel pump off the bowl then pull the fuel bowl out

The fuel bowl is just connected by a couple rubber hoses that can be easily removed and the pump will come out without pulling turbo too .the banjo bolt is a little tricky to get to though

The only hic-up is if you have a cali truck, then you have to pull the turbo to change the fuel pump due to the accumulator on it. The fuel bowl can be removed on all obs's with out any issues...

Replace the hoses while your in there, I was going to reseal mine but when I found a brand new one for $330 that included bowl, filter, regulator, sensor and a new wiring harness. I decided to go that route instead. I ended up selling the old bowl on ebay for $145...

^second replacing the hoses. Got all of them at the local dealer for $25ish and took a few minutes and cuss words to put them in while I had the bowl out.
