I need to remove the engine side of the turbo oil drain so that I can modify it. This is the part I am talking about
I have removed the bolt holding the bracket in place and applied as much force as I am comfortable applying w/o damaging anything. It will not budge in any direction. I would think that it should be light press fit with an o-ring in there someplace for sealing but I can not find any information about it in the factory manual. Has anybody here personally removed this? Is there some trick to this?
If you are interested in why I have to modify the oil returnůsee here:
