    hi. its an awkward job but do-able on axle stands. the turbo unit will have to be taken out from underneath.

    Nah you don't have to drop the subframe, you have to take the exhaust off and then the turbo will come through between the subframe and body.

    My mate always recommends that you get a new oil return pipe as this quite often gets damaged. He says he always has a new one on the parts list when he does one at work as 8 times out of 10 it is required.
