23.04.2005: Nuts removed
The leftmost nut took the stud with it, but the rest came off without a fight. The WIS calls for complete turbo removal, otherwise there's not enough room to get the manifold off the studs on both sides. We chose to remove the manifold studs instead, since we planned to replace them anyway.

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.

Tools:

  • 13 mm socket: manifold, turbo and steering pump nuts;
  • two 13 mm wrenches: manifold, turbo and steering pump nuts;
  • 10 mm socket: air filter housing;
  • 7 mm socket: hose clamps;
  • Torx T27 socket: PCV line;
  • ratchet handle;
  • torque wrench;
  • long 1/2" socket extension;
  • 4 mm Allen key;
  • drill with cobalt bits and right angle attachment;
  • a piece of metal pipe or a hose coupler that fits the stud holes;
  • small mirror;
  • screw extractors;
  • tap wrench (optionally with a 8x1.25 mm tap);
  • car jacks and stands or ramps.
