    Thumbs up S3 EXHAUST FITTING... EASY ENOUGH??

    Hi,

    I believe to change the 2007 S3 exhaust (2 piece turbo back) it requires removing the driveshaft? Is this true? Is that a straight forward job?

    Cheers in advance

    The prop shaft needs to be undone at the front to gain space to remove the down pipe.

    Turbo flange bolts meant to be tricky.

    Worth it though as the gains are excellent.

    -BMW 335d Xdrive, Estoril Blue, fully loaded.

    Before:
    S3 (8P), Ibis, DSG, Milltek, SHARK

    BMW 320d M Sport
    S3 (8P), Sprint, REVO, H&R Springs, BBS CHs,

    Golf MK5 GTi 20TFSI - REVO Stage1, Red.

    Straight forward job... Should have been. I'm now 1 bolt short where the heat shield/cover plate separates the drive shaft and exhaust. Turned out the guy didn't use the little tabs that retain / stop the bolts falling out and now the bolts on a slip road somewhere!

    does anyone know the correct way of using the little tabs that are on this plate? There's 4 tabs, but looks like only one of the 4 tabs is supposed to be bent over the bolts washer. Can anyone confirm?

    This gives an impression of what a tight space it is....
