Removal of inlet manifold on DS3 1.6 THP

Post by MarcoDS3 »

Does anyone happen to know how best to access the lower bolt on the inlet manifold. I know it’s just below the throttle body but I can’t seem to lay eyes on it either from above or below the car :(

I suspect that the best access is by removing the link section of exhaust pipe just behind the engine (based on my familiarity with the 308 THP).

Having said that, I have had the manifold off the head and pushed back for access to other things without actually loosening the lower bolt.

Thanks for the tips mate. I’m gonna give the second one a go first as I just want to check the vacuum lines around that area as I have a boost leak atm. Hoping one of them has popped off when I had the coolant pipe changed
