Hi and Welcome to Just Answer! My name is XXXXXX XXX I will do my best to help.
you need to remove turbo charger and fuel filter housing
Ok but i can leave the HPOP in place?
it is bolted to the side, will send you instructions
do they make a special tool to take the IPR Valve out? or do I just use a wrench?
you need deep 27 mm socket with thin wall
and the connector on the side fits inside socket then?
No, there is a nut, which is easy to remove, then pull out solenoid with connector
please click here to see
that nut you are refering to is that the one builtinto the sensor that butts up against the oil pump?
it is the one you see on the picture I have sent
after you pull out solenoid you will see valve
ok so your saying i should turn out the little nut in the back pointing toward turbo? then the valve will come out? and the solenoid will stay behind on the pump?
this is correct, remove small nut pointing turbo, pull out solenoid and then unscrew valve
ok thnx for your help!!
