OBS turbo removal help please!!!

Im working on getting my turbo off. My question is, how does everyone get the left rear bolt out of the pedestal? h I cant get any leverage with a 10mm wrench on it, there is just not enough room. I think that if I had just a little bit longer 1/4 inch extension I can get it from the top with my 10mm swivel socket. Some people think that the right rear bolt is the biggest problem, but I can get on it. If I can get these two bolts out I will just need to get the lower left nut on the exhaust flange and I will have it beat....

I usually pull the 4 bolts off the turbo flange and remove the turbo first. Than the pedestal bolts are easy.

But that's on my H2 turbo.. I can't remember, but I think stock is nearly the same??:shrug:

Stock turbo the pedistal is bolted to the housing, it all comes off at once.http://www.thedieselstop.com/content...0%26%20Rebuild Poke that and read it. I did exactly what it said and didn't have any problems getting the back bolts off.

Mine didnt either, I just needed more freakin adaptors and 15mm wrench to cut in two.... At least I know how to do it now, it wont be quite as bad next time, although I hope there isnt a next time....
