    2.0 TFSI Turbo Removal 'How To'

    Thanks for the reply. That's what I thought - just wanted to make sure there were no hidden nasties! I assume the turbo/exhaust manifold combo comes out through the space left by the exhaust when it's removed? (Or is there sufficient space to lift them out upwards)?

    Boost Leak Question 2007 2.0 TFSI
