3 retaining bolts, one in the back. The 03-early 04 turbo bolt is blue circle, the late 04-07 is red circle.

It sucks. I used a small pry bar and a screw driver. Walk away and go back to it. There is no trick just patients. A 90 degree screw driver might help.

No there are three if it is an 04-06 pedistal. There is a bolt in the back side of the pedistal. I thought you meant the pipes. The turbo should come right off with all 3 bolts out.

There are 3 bolts regardless of the year of engine. Only the bolt orientation changed from the 03 and early 04 6.0's to the 04.5 - 2007 6.0's.

Just wait until that back bolt rounds off! Lol

Before you round off the bolt, work the turbo up and down by prying up over by the egr cooler then push back down repete. That will help loosen the back bolt.
