I am not endorsing any product nor do I have any affiliation to any company that supplies or manufactures tools.  I am not recommending any particular method or tool to carry out any process, removal or insertion of a component.  This WEB  link details my experiences and methods used to successfully remove the fractured part of the stud remaining in the cylinder block.   Glad that’s out of the way.


Lets prepare

First and foremost  this is not a quick job and it requires lots of patience.  It is unlikely that it could be completed over a weekend - unless you are lucky.


Be prepared and plan what tools you will require to complete the job.   Set achievable and realistic objectives for the day and do not rush it to catch up if you fall behind.  I consider any stage after the removal of the turbo as a ‘one way  street’ as you become committed to succeed or fail .


Make sure that all removed items can be stored safely in a clean dry area.  In the engine compartment cover any holes, orifices, pipes as they become exposed to prevent foreign objects or material from entering e.g. swarf  from drilling, broken drill bits etc.
