|23.04.2005: Manifold studs|
The nuts on the remaining manifold studs come next. The three studs in the
middle are short, while the outer ones are long and have cylindrical spacers
on them, designed to help with deformations occuring at high temperatures.
Exhaust manifold removal and re-installation on the
1996 Saab 900 (4 cylinder turbo).
The manifold had to come off because there were two broken studs on the
driver side of the manifold. The gasket needed a replacement too.
