I have just discovered that this horrible sound coming from my S3 is a cracked manifold. I started to remove it yesterday only to find a siezed bolt on the turbo bracket under the turbo. The bolt has now broken and i cannot remove the turbo!!! So i thought its ok i will just remove the bracket from where it connects to the block only to find i cant without removing the transmission box as the bolts are right behind there!!!!!
Anyone got any ideas? how hard is it to remove the manifold with the turbo and front pipe still in place?
