Turbo removal help

Trying to get the turbo off and have everything loose , darn clamp to the uppipes is seized pretty well. It is totally undone but I can't get to the bottom to pop it loose all the way around. I can get to the nuts on the drivers side to loosen the uppipes but can't even see them on the passenger side. Is there an easy way to do this or am I gonna have to drop the exhaust and all to get to the uppipes to take apart there instead? sorry formthe dumb ? But Internet is down and posting off the phone or would search this out on a big screen. Thanx guys

The clamp on the back of the turbo is your issue? I was able to loosen with socket, then take ratchet off and take a hammer and hit either socket or extension a few time to jar the bolt on the clamp. Just give it a few good whacks and hopefully it will come loose for you. If not, keep whacking Lol

Duh !!! A socket on the nut.... Imagine that !!! Will try that in the AM. Soaked it with lube but it's on there pretty well. Helped a friend last week and we ended up having to take the uppipes loose and one broke at the flange trying to loosen it so was trying to avoid this mishap again. Thanks guys !!
