Tips for removing collector clamp to get turbo out?

So I figured I'd go ahead and do the epbv delete and couldn't really find a write up with many pictures...
Got the intake spider out fine, down pipe taken off and the two 16mm bolts holding turbo to pedestal....

I cannot get the damn clamp on the back of the turbo off that connects to y pipes. Any tips or tricks much appreciated. Got some liquid wrench on it now hoping it will help lol but that thing is damn near welded on there....

you can get a big screw driver in between the compressor housing and exhaust housing, then you can pry part of the clamp off.

i ruined my last clamp, it wouldn't come loose so i got pissed and pulled the turbo off with the clamp still partially attached, but i got it loose

I had to basically lay on top of the drivers side of the motor compartment to really get a good angle and space to work. After I got the bolt on the clamp loosened and uncooked I just spun the clamp on the flanges to get it loose and then pulled on the side away from the bolt and it popped off. Worst part was how that bolt was oriented when I loosened it. Was a real pita to get it unbolted. My clamp was in great shape so I just reused it but if you have to use a screwdriver definitely inspect it to see if you have to get a new clamp.

Step 1:
Use a long punch and hit it with a BFH!!!
Step 2:
Buy new clamp.

I was surprised how hard I had to hit mine to get it loose.

I had just sprayed mine down and let it sit for a bit. I pryed a little. Then while I was doing something else, it sprung off.

I too destroyed one while removing the turbo from my parts truck, and that was with the transmission out being able to hit it from underneath.

Now before I upgrade my E99 turbo, I have bought a new clamp just in case

ya any sort of penetrating lubricant works great, but i never have time to sit and wait.

my trucks my only transportation so i need to get it fixed as fast as possible, so a new clamp was easier in the scheme of things
