Help, trying to remove head 2.0 hdi

Post by dirtydirtydiesel » Sun May 27, 2018 4:26 pm

Hi all,
Anyone out there with service box account please advise me how to remove the plastic thermostat housing
that goes into the end of the head, the whole assembly.
I've unbolted it all but there's a metal coolant pipe
that comes out of the back & runs under the manifolds.
I don't want to break it :frown:
There are some pictures of it removed in a post by jamelxdt (The head is off......almost)
Which Welly kindly linked to my post about head gasket replacement,
You can clearly see it removed & the pipe still in place across the back of the block.
But I can't workout for the life of me how.

ps it's been a pig of a job up to now :(

Sorry for the out of focus picture :oops:
Probably due to arm shake due to lifting off the head assembly complete with manifolds turbo ect.
Not ideal but it work's :?

I am convinced that the plastic thermostat housing that I referred to,
was broken off by jameslxdt in his post.

I decided to leave it in place & remove the studs from the end of the head, allowing me to remove it.
You can just about make it out in the photo.
As with the head off I still can't see how you can separate them.
