Could you make the pictures more clearly and how many bolts to remove in each sections.

thank you

Hi,

 

 

the directions are straight from the manual. I dont know how many bolts you have to remove for each part as (A) I dont count them when I do the repair, (B) NO service manual gives you a count as repair manuals assume the person doing the repair as a modicum of repair skills and will use their common sense and visually inspect each component for where the bolts are located and keep track themselves.

 

most pictures show how many and which bolts to remove
