Cayenne turbo cooling T pipe replacement

Cayenne turbo cooling T pipe replacement

(disclaimer: not responsible if you damage your car) My 2004 CTT already had the aluminum cooling pipe, but recently it lost a lot of coolant as the T pipe broke. A steady stream of coolant flowed out. If your CTT is 50K+ miles, suggest to have them replaced. I think that part will eventually fail for everyone. Unlike breather / vacuum like breaking (that happens often too), the coolant T pipe will disable the car. Actually I was able to slowly drive it home after filling with distilled water,

Need help with the T's stuck between a block and a hard place.

As part of the aluminum cooling pipe upgrade, I'm replacing the two plasticTee's on my 04 CTT. To make matters worse, they look great (in retrospect) except for the transverse cuts I made to increase the working room back there. Now there's no going back.

Everything is out, but the hose and clamp on the drivers side that (I believe) runs to the drivers side turbo. It's the hose that's about 1/2 inch and connects to a horizontal hard line.

I can see the hose clamp from the drivers side top and looking up from the bottom. But seeing is not enough.

How do you recommend gaining access to this clamp?

Please advise.

Thanks in advance.

Figured it out myself. Took a day and some perspective and it was the easiest of the cooling T pipes to remove. I got off track in my thinking because someone tackled one of these pipes from below. Not me. To reach the leg of the cooling pipe running to the drivers side turbo, just reach around the back of the drivers side head with your left hand and with the other hand drop the hose clamp compressor down the right hand side. Your left hand will be there to intercept and apply the hose clamp compressor. Once the clamp is compressed, you can pry the cooling tube off that horizontal hard pipe with a long screw driver.
