I dont think it'll be too bad...I need to pull off the driver side as its leaking...I plan on removing the front driver wheel...Then possible the shock tower, and seeing how it looks from there...May have to remove the fender liner but im hoping not. 8 bolts to remove the manifold +2 bolts holding the manifold to the up pipe.
i had an exhaust manifold leak, and it wasnt to bad. i pulled off the shock tower as stated above, and inner fender liner also. my mechanic freind that was helping me said i was lucky because i was able to remove all the bolts without busting any off. i guess it can make a fairly easy fix into a real pain when bolts start breaking. good luck
