    What is the purpose of this..



    And can it be removed? Kind of gets in the way of 1.9 pipework.

    (Sorry for the flurry of beginner questions).

    To lift the engine out of the car with a hoist, you can take it off if you want, but dont loose it. Just incase

    i removed mine before i fitted the engine, not required to fit as you just strap the engine elsewhere.

    Looks a lot neater . Difficult to remove, managed to eventually though. (My wrench only just fit - don't have a right angle one on hand).
