Hi with my down time I thought I'd get round to fitting new EGR cooler and the metal coolant pipe that runs along the front of the engine :) . A couple of questions if you don't mind 1 I've got a new gasket for the coolant pipe is it advisable to use any sealant on it ?, 2 does anyone know what thread the bleed screw is ? don't like those plastic things . cheers and all keep well

use a small screwdiver to slide the plastic runners out..mine broke when i changed my cooler pipe aswell. the pipe i had bolted to the head where youre looks like it connects inside a hose ? a bolt snapped on mine so ended up taking the front end off.

Thanks for that (y) Looks like I'm going to give up for now , can't get the turbo air intake off :( ( can't risk causing too much damage when I can't nip out for new bits ) I loosened it off ok and moves back to front but doesn't want to slip off :(

yeah..its hard plastic and needs a bit of persuasion to get it over the lip on the turbo inlet port.a nice big prybar and a wriggle usually pops them off.

cheers yet again , I was too much of a coward to give it too much stick . If I break it I'm stuffed , think I need to find a spare from a breakers before I have another go at it ;)

I'm going to stop crawling about under this car , noticed an odd drip :( fuel filter leak looks like it from the top seal ( fingers crossed ) so sent for new GM filter . It's doing it's best to keep me occupied in this lock down ;)
