URGENT HELP PLEASE - N47 Manifold removal

Post by D155555 » Sat Jan 13, 2018 11:23 am

Hi all

I am attempting to remove the manifold from my 123d - n47.

I have undone the 5 bolts on the manifold however the thing will not budge... not even the slightest.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Hi bud... yep I’m actually following that guide :-)

I’ve got all the way down to the 5 manifold bolts but now I’m stuck as the damn thing won’t move.

Do the glow plug connectors need to be removed?

I had the same problem with mine (although its M47). Used flat head screwdriver just to loosen it (put screwdriver in-between manifold and head, and twist it). After that everything went smooth. Hope this will help :)

Glad my guide has came in useful for someone! Lol

There are cables and pipes clipped to the underside of the manifold if I remember correctly. Try and squeeze your hand in and check.

I’ve got the same issue as in the video above.... I cannot see anything else that requires unplugging.
