Removal of Scuttle Panel/Bulkhead Extension in Engine Bay
« on: June 15, 2016, 07:47:55 PM »
Hi,

I've got the dreaded 'whooshing sound' when the turbo is on boost problem and i suspect a split turbo-boost/EGR hose and I need to get to the back of the engine compartment to check what's going on.   

I've tried to remove the scuttle panel/bulkhead extension, but have been thwarted at every attempt.  I just can't seem to locate all of the fixings and don't want to strong-arm the thing off, as I just know it'll break and cost me a small fortune to replace. 

I've removed 2 x 10mm bolts on either side of the scuttle panel (see pic - 2 red circles) along with the wipers and I can't seem to see what else I need to undo to remove the panel - it doesn't seem to want to come away from the car.  Does any one have any ideas please? 

For information, the car is a MK3 Galaxy 2.2 TDCI.  All helpl grateful received!

Thanks,

Ian.

Cheers Greg - I got there in the end.  There are loads of hidden clips to negotiate, but it's quite straightforward once you work it all out.

Now I've just got to find the split hose down at the back of the engine...!  :/
