Total pain, hey?? Okay, to get the lower exhaust flange nuts, use a STUBBY 15mm combination wrench, and a prybar of some sort against whatever you can (head, turbine housing etc) the back pedistal bolts are a real &*(^ ^%&* ^^^&*. if you can take of the exhaust butterfly (usually the bolts get rusted in place), it will help you get a clear shot at the passenger rear bolt. I can't remember bolt head sizes on the pedistal bolts, but it took a lot of small 12 point wrench flip and turns to get loose, followed by finger turning.

I have the turbo unbolted from the flange , and 2.5 of the pedistal bolts out......

I was just hoping there was an easier way.....


Do I have to unbolt the up pipes to get to the rear ped. bolt?

shouldn't need to mess with the up-pipes, it's a tight fit, but it will come out.

if you can, dont unbolt the pedistal, reach your hand under the pedistal and unbolt the 4 10mm bolts that hold the turbo to the pedistal. i just did mine yesterday and that was the easiest way to do it. i used a bunch of different sized 10mm wrenches to accomplish it. its alot of the 1/8 turn and flip crap, but it got it done. hope that helps.

Okay I'm at the end of the line here... bout ready to go insane! I am in the process of fixing all my little leaks. I'm doing the turbo pedestal and EBPV currently, so I have the down pipe unhooked exhaust valve off, all four bolts off the exhaust collector, and three of the pedestal bolts off. I just don't see how the drivers side rear pedestal bolt can be reached even with a universal. I cant get it to fit between the EBV solenoid and the drivers side of the collector. Any ideas or help??????

You need to use 1/4" drive ratchet/extensions/universal to get in there. The 3/8" stuff is just too fat.

I just came back to say I got it and yes alberta 7.3 that is exactly what it took... I would suggest two 1/4 universal tho cuz I broke mine as the bolt let lose! Luckily I have a spare. I cant say how glad I am to be over this hurdle!!!!

Got another question, I hear a noise in my turbo. It's on the exhaust side and at the point I hear the sound if I turn it back and forth slowly it sounds like something is catching but no resistance just a sound. Is that the early sign of a bad bearing?
