I feel stupid asking this... I've got the downpipe disconnected and put aside, and I've got the 3 bolts that connect it to the exhaust manifold removed. The intake piping is removed. The turbo is just hanging there and I can't get it off! Can't see what's holding it on, what's the trick I'm missing here???

There is one little bracket to the block I think? And one coolant hose mounts to a bracket and can hang you up if I remember correctly.

I've been out of commission for the past few months and the car has just been sitting in my carport... finally about to start working on it again...

There must be a bracket behind it somewhere, but I can't find it!

Oil lines are off

Water lines are off

Exhaust downpipe is off

Intake pipe is off

Bolts from turbo to exhaust manifold are off

Turbo wiggles but still can't get it off... I wish I could find a diagram or picture or something showing what to look for, I've got a bad back and it's difficult to get down there!
