    Fitting Turbo Heashield

    Evening All,

    I was trying to fit my Heatshield (one of Glann Yale's) yesterday, but i was scuppered with getting to the E12 Bolt which is below the Breather Pipe, as there isnt enough room to get the wrench in there.

    The only solution i could think off was to remove the Pipe that goes down to the bottom of the engine, but how has anyone else done it ???????????

    Ta Muchly,

    Timmy,

    I used a 1/4" drive and a small socket on it.

    As stated use a small spanner, fits over nicely. I used a ratchet spanner and got it nipped up in no time.
