    Default Heat shield.

    Are the 2 bolt heads (highlighted in red in the pic) the only ones that hold on the turbo heat shield ?
    I've tried to take the shield off and it wont budge ! Can't see or feel anything else from the top of the engine and i don't want to force it incase it causes damage !
    Any ideas peeps ?

    With the turbo nice and cool - or at least wearing a big thick glove like a workmans glove - simply put your hand down the back of the the heatshield i.e. the bit nearest the screen. You'll then feel the bottom edge of it. Simply pull hard upwards as it's a sprung clip thing that holds it on. Once it comes off you'll see what I mean.

    Excellent ! Thanks.
    I could feel something like a rivet underneath, but could't feel anything else. I presume that's what holds the spring clip in place ?
