Default Tips for removing lower coolant line on turbo?

I feel like a moron because this is supposed to be an easy install, but I can't for the life of me see how to get this off. There is no way to get any kind of leverage on the little clamp and even if you could you can't move it much because it runs into the heatshield-wrap on the rubber hose. Do people just muscle it off with the clamp on there?!?

Thanks,
Dan

That goes against every writeup I've seen - They all say just to pull the hoses off of the coolant lines from the turbo. The top one wasn't a big deal, although it spilled quite a bit of coolant all over the place, since I was expecting it to come from the line and not the turbo itself.

...d000000d......long needle nose....squeeze clamp and pull it UP onto the hose as far as is possible....push---yes PUSH the hose down while twisting it---and avoiding blood donation ......as soon as ya feel it 'give' pull it off the hardpipe and done.


re-install is easy BUT!!!!!....push the hose on a bit farther than ya want it....put the clamp back just below the bead on the hardpipe and gently PULL the hose so that the clamp is pulled up against the bead on the hardpipe.

I chased THAT ****ing leak for 2 weels, once

Well there was no way it was moving back, I just forced it off the front with the needle nose...hopefully getting it back on won't be suicide.

I also had a leak from that line for forever after the reinstall. You will notice that the hard line bends as it gets closer to the block. I pushed the tubing too far down over the bend and it created a bit of an opening for coolant to drip out. That line is definitely a pita.

I came to find out the uppipe is installed incorrectly and the bolts (yes, bolts) are seized in the holes where the studs were supposed to go I should be done already but I can't even get the turbo out thanks to the asshat who fvcked this install up the first time

i didn't trust the stock clamps so i replaced them with small hose clamps. access was horrible.

also didn't think i would ever get the banjo bolt to thread back in but it did after dozens of attempts.
