This ^^^^^

We had a hell of a time with my buddies 04, both times we had to pull the turbo. Just know that you can't use the V-clamp to 'pull' the flanges together. They have to be together before the clamp goes on.

Great advice from these two guys. I know that it's easier said than done, but keep at it. It WILL eventually go back together without leaking. And when it does... Best of luck, buddy.

There's that raised ridge on the Y-pipe. I absolutely HAS to seat inside the turbo before the clamps go on. As others have said, the clamps will not pull it into place.

Mine was real close, but not seated. I used a broomstick to get force right where I wanted it and it popped right into the socked in the turbo. Like I said it was real close, but just wast right. It did not take a lot of force; it was more about getting a little push on the Y pipe at the right location.

There's always the approach of loosening the Y at the exhaust manifolds and starting at the turbo end & working down.

Put a ratchet tie down around it and go over the passenger fender (with a towel between fender and strap) and down to your wheel spoke or somewhere on the frame in the fenderwell. It will pull in by ratcheting on it a little.

I had the same problem after a turbo cleaning. A fellow member clued me in on this and it worked like a champ.

Good luck!
