    My personal tutorial:
    Take off every single bolt that is attached to the plenum. Seriously, all the bolts that need to be taken off are readily visible.

    It looks really complicated, but its quite straight foward. Don't forget to plug your vacuum lines back in also (especially the big ass hose that connects to the master brake cylinder).

    yeah, look around the plenum on all sides so your not standing in front of the car for 2 hours looking confused

    plenum removal

    Should I replace the intake gasket while i have the intake off or is it usually reusable if it looks good?


    Thanks,

    You could reuse the old one if it looks good, but if you will not touch it for an other 60K, I'd just replace it. It's an inexpensive item.

    Im doing the plenum removal this afternoon to change the spark plugs. I've been at it a few hours already. :D

    I've got 2 or 3 steps left before taking the plenum off, I am a little unsure on step 8, unplugging the wire harness to the sensors. As it says I push out on the flairs (gently with a watch screw driver) and the brown part of the connector comes away, however The wires going into the black part of the connector are still firmly in place.

    Im sure this is really simple, I just being cautious not to mess it up.

    These are the connectors Im talking about that I want to unplug:





    Thanks for any suggestions. :)

    You see the metal clip on this pic going accross the black part? Thats where you'd disconnect the sensor. Anyway, just unbolt the the screws on the sides and pull the whole thing out. No need to disconnect the wire, and the sensor needs to come out anyway if your cleaning the mani.

    Thanks very much, I'll just unbolt that one, and unclip the other.
