Lower engine mount block removal - 1998 1.9tdi - help!

Post by GPW »

I'm trying to change my 406's lower engine mount by taking the mounting block that the driveshaft runs through off the engine.

So far I have removed the driveshaft, the lower mount lever and undone the two lower 16mm bolts on the block near the sump, a top 16mm bolt and a smaller nut that has a strut that goes to the turbo.

The block is still attached by the rest of the turbo support stud and nut and I cannot see a way to either remove the turbo's strut or to get the block out. What should I do next to get this final stud/bolt out so I can get the block off of the engine?

Thanks in advance!!

I cut mine out in situ & pulled the new one in using grease, some 12 or 14mm studing & some plates
Of steel.
Or you could use powerflex ones which are split & push in by hand with some grease.

I'm stuck with that I think, I'll stick the other bolts back in and cut it out, powerflex bush on order.
At least then I'll never have to do it again!!
