You CAN get the pump out without removing the turbo. You might have to modify a wrench to do so. I'm assuming you're talking sbout mot neing able to get the banjo bolt loose?

I had to get a mechanic buddy with every 10mm SnapOn he had to come over. The right tool for the job was a single joint swivel head 10mm ext for a 3/8 driver. 10 minute and it was off. Good Luck!

i just changed my fuel pump on the side of the road last week, picked up a 1 1/4 wrench and broke the nut loose, then got 2 finger tips on it to spin it out, putting it back together was a little tougher but once i got it lined up it spun right in with finger tips again then tightened it up with the wrench again

Yeah, I was going to say I just did mine last weekend and didnt even need to bend the end of the wrench and the webbing on my turbo pedestal is still there. However when you break it loose enough to use your fingers, be prepared to take many a small turn and figure out what positioning is right and youll be in it to win it. PAtient, a good light, and impeccable technique is the key!
