  1. I just finished this about an hour ago, and it was the hardest repair I've ever done. This guide and a video on YouTube from Ptehch really helped with getting everything off. Passenger side was kind of easy - use penetrating oil for the parts that are stuck. Everything on the drivers side basically sucked. - Removing the water hose (t25) - I just shoved the hoses down and pushed on the electrical harness to force the bit in - Lower M10s - I used a crow bar to get move the metal part down and then got the socket in - Fuel rail - to be honest, I didn't remove this properly. I just kept wiggling the manifold and eventually it all came off (may have caused some of my problems later on) Reassembly sucked as well. that gas line in the back is the worst. Why would they even design it that way?? It's like they hate their mechanics. I tried lining up the gas line ahead for both the upper fitting- which wouldn't line up again when assembled then the lower fitting and it kind of worked except I couldn't tighten it enough- had gas shooting everywhere. Since I had it kind of together at that point, I ended up taking off the filter (or pump?) - its the part that connects to all the other gas lines. I took off the 3 screws and the upper gas line. Once that is out of the way there is enough space if you have a short 14 wrench. I had to cut on in half to get it in there to tighten everything. I think if I ever have to do that again I would take that out at the beginning. If you look closely at the Ptech video, he has it out.
