hard fuel line replacement

i have had a small leak from the passenger side hard fuel line.
i was wondering if i need to remove the turbo to change this?
i figured i might get away with just taking the intake manifold off but if someone has done thins any advice is appreciated!

Its gonna be a pain regardless but I think u may be OK by just disconnecting the downpipe from the turbo. Well and the glow plug relay will help.

Set aside about 4 hours to do this. I've done it twice. Remove the passenger side intake pipe and you can get to everything.
The only thing that may be close is the down pipe. I have some fancy ratcheting, flex head, crowfoot wrenches that made the job super easy the second time.

First time I reached in and cut the line right behind the fitting (i didnt have the fancy wrenches) and used a socket to remove. Installing is pretty simple, you can finger tighten it most of the way.

That's for the rear fitting, the one on the fuel bowl is obviously quite easy

thanks guys i knew it wasnt not gonna be fun.
i kinda like your method of cutting it off and using a socket to get if off.
i guess ill remember that just in case.
i have some crows foot wrenches too.

im gonna do the drivers side one as well.
but it looks easy.
id hate to do one and have the other one start leaking.

Crow foots are good anyway but I have some flex head ones now. They make the job about a half hour start to finish.

I cut the line off because it was either that or cut one of my wrenches shorter which I didn't feel like doing. I've done it with brake lines countless times.

Locally, I'm in Canada Mate so I wouldn't even begin to guess where you could get something similar.

But in reality a stubby wrench will get the rear bolt with relative ease.
