Turbo Head shield removal

Hi All,

I need some help and advice on how to take off the heat shield around the turbo unit on a mini cooper clubman 2008, without taking the hall front off? IE grill, bumper, radiator etc....?

I am trying to replace the turbo oil feed pipe and its hallow bolt which has a mesh filter built in, as well as tightening the claim that fits the turbo on the the Cat, got some soot around it which I'm guessing is due to a loose clamp that joins the turbo to cat conveter.

Thank you in advance

one thing you must do disconnect the battery first, as when you try and remove dpf filter it will hit alternator and spark or do damage,, and the answer to you question no you really do need to loosen the front.. you can undo it all and disconnect the turbo inter cooler pipe on drivers side get someone to hold the front away from car while you lifter filter out,, this is same if car is petrol or diesel,, stupid pain in arse job the first time.. also when you remove filter fit a new pipe at same time, i have had a number of them leak after being moved.. you can get away with leaning the filter forward with the front of car buts its just as easy to remove it,,

whoops thought was talking diesel sorry yes can get them off but tight on petrol, on diesels the dpf pipes dont like coming off and round off hence why i always would say to move the front out a tad

I just replaced my turbo oil feed hose on the clubman JCW.
I used my ratchet spanners and did not remove the front end. ��

I've done it myself on a JCW without removing the front but as Mike says it's much easier to do with the front loosened up

Worked for me and I only have 6 fingers so you should be fine.

I would post some pics but it's too much of a ball ache on this forum. I have pics over on the Facebook page 'JCW Clubman UK Register'.
