Question Do I have to remove the IC to get the turbo heat shield off?

Anyone know? Is it possible to either slide it down or work some other tricks to get it off without messing with the intercooler?

Thanks,
Paul

Just go for it - get the IC outta the way, it's really not hard. The most difficult part is getting the IC y-hose back on the turbo upon reinstallation.. everything else is a piece of cake.

NO you do not need to take off the IC to take the heat shield off.

You probably don't have to as long as you have the tools to get to all the bolts that hold the heat shield on. However with the IC out of the way it's much easier to work in there.

you can remove it without taking the IC off. I did that a few days ago, and I'm going to put the sheild back on tonight!

So for those of you who took the shield off without moving the IC, what's the trick? I have all the bolts out of the shield, but can't seem to get it out of there.

I'd like to get it off so I can soak the DP bolts a few times before replacing the exhaust.

Thanks,
Paul

make sure you get ALL the bolts, there's a lot of them and I missed one and the sheild would not come off!

Once you get them all it should lift straight up and then tilt towards the firewall.... then lift up again and it's out.

The tough bolts are deep underneath. I only use four on mine now (took it off to polish it), and it is rock solid. You may need to soak the bolts in something.
