    Default Removing inlet manifold DS23ie

    Anyone can explain the steps to removing the inlet from a 23ie ? I now need to take a look at fuel pressure regulator and also change number 3 spark plug.
    Keep in mind I am mechanically spastic, so is there anything I might upset while doing this?

    Try just taking the top half off , it much easier and you can change all the little rubber hoses at the fuel pressure regulator , and you can check the fuel pressure at the same time .
    The plugs can be changed without removing the manifold.

    Someone who has done one recently will probably speak up soon... But really all you need to do is pull all of the hoses and lift it off. I can't remember where it's bolted down, but there's nothing to it (it'll be obvious). Careful there is no residual fuel pressure when you pull the cold start injector line (you could just unscrew the cold start injector and leave it in place I guess).

    How do I do that ?

    No, seriously. 4 big hose clamps (1 on each each runner) and a couple of locating bolts. One or two near the TB and maybe one or two on the webbing between the runners.

    DONE ! Thanks everyone.

    Geez that was easy after all. It was an item I was kind of scared of touching. But it went fine.

    Actually it was so easy I am sure I will have to pay for that at some stage, being a DS , probably when I try to re-install it!
