|23.04.2005: Stud removal|
The remaining manifold studs were removed using an old trick with two
nuts tightened together. The short stud closest to the two previously
broken ones also broke after we attempted to remove it. Fortunately, it
left a piece long enough so we could grab it with vice grips and unscrew
the stud later when the manifold was off.
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.
