    Default 19DTH Manifold HELP!!!

    Hope someone can help me here. I'm replacing the manifold on my 06 Signum CDTI. I've been following drj69uk's How To but I've hit a problem. I can't get the oil separator bracket off. I've removed the two nuts from the studs at the top, the bolt at the bottom and the other one at the side of the oil separator, off to the left in my photo. But it's like I've removed nothing. It refuses to budge, it isn't even loose!
    Has anyone done this and had the same problem and more to the point, solved it?

    IIRC there is a bolt at the bottom of the bracket that you cannot see

    You were right. Right down below the oil separator tank, set back on a step down from the rest of the bracket - 13mm socket took it off. I actually wouldn't have reached it if I hadn't taken the oil tank off first - two 8mm bolts on the top, easy to get at and then gently but firmly wiggle until it came away. The bottom of the tank is held by a bolt into a brass insert in the plastic of the mounting spigot. The bolt is through from the inside of the bracket so acn't get at it until the bracket is off. What I had done was work the brass insert out of the plastic.
    I've done some tight jobs before but this one takes some beating - I think I'll be setting a world record for this job - and it won't be one I'll be proud of.
    Many thanks for your help!
