    If you have big hands and forearms like I do it can be very challenging. For the Rear turbo, I just basically stuck my hand down as close to the wastegate as I could and yanked on it a bunch of times. The hose eventually ripped off. I then used my finger nail to pick off the small piece left over. Yank with care.

    For the front turbo, there are 3 10mm nuts and bolts holding the vacuum cannisters down. Remove them and lift the vacuum cannisters out of the way. This line is a little easier to get to.

    Getting new lines on is also a challenge. Just take your time.

    This is good advice because it includes the word nipples.

    The turbo actuator lines. I cant get down there (from above) to score the lines on the nipples which is why I didn't try. I also am still wondering why those lines have braided shielding and others don't. I don't ant to be replacing lines with shielding with line that doesn't have it if there is a purpose for the shielding.

    Apparently if you don't brake for nipples you will eventually score in your house.

    At least that's how I understood it.

    i had no vacuum pressure at all at 65,000 miles. the vacuum lines were breaking especially the funny braided ones next to the oil filter.
