Well I think my Exhaust Manifold is really on it way out, not only do I get the dreaded cabin smell but I also have a chirping sound definitely coming from the manifold, gets louder when I put my hand over the back over the exhaust (to test) I had it confirm by my local Honda dealer to that it was cracked, well I want to get it sorted, I had a quote of £712 parts and fitting from HH, thanks but no thanks so I'm now thinking of cracking it myself, (get it .....crack lol) trying to find a how to I couldn't find anything so this is all I have: Drain the cooling system 2. Remove the plastic engine cover 3. Remove the front section of the exhaust 4. Remove the turbo oil feed and return pipe 5. Remove the intake pipe and the pipe to the intercooler 6. Unbolt the actuator 7. Remove the manifold heat shield 8. Unbolt the turbo water feed and unclip the water return 9. Unbolt the turbo and remove (be warned it is quite heavy) 10. Unbolt the manifold and remove Does anyone have any technical diagrams of the area I'll be working on that I could use as reference, I'll be jacking the car up on axle stands which should give me enough clearance to get underneath and sort it out, how much coolant does the CTDI hold? also what does the actuator look like , I've done work like this in the past, and from what I've seen on other forums its actually a straight forward job to do, just a bit time consuming, I have plenty of tools. Does anyone also know the torq setting that would be require for the manifold itself? I've found the kits on ebay for around £320 genuine or I could get a third party kit for alot less, but at the same time you also get alot less in the "kit", so its going to be expensive non the less, I've phone a few local independent garages and they were a little bit hesitant to offer to do it never mind provide a quote so I'm a bit stuck really.... Has anyone out there done this themselves? Other than draining and replacing the coolant (because I don't know how much it holds) and don't see this as being to difficult, my main worry is if I screw it up for any reason I'll have a rather sluggish car making a racket lol.... Cheers boys.
