If so give me some tips, it doesn't look like a 5 minute job

16 or 17mm for exhaust bolt near the centre bearing

Disconnect negative battery terminal

Remove exhaust by the 2 x 13mm bolts near the starter motor

Remove the 16 or 17mm nuts from exhaust partition at the centre bearing

Remove 15mm nut which holds the exhaust to the mounting braxket from the gearbox

Disconnect the oxygen sensor from the plug

With the 13mm socket and extension bar

Remove 2 x mounting bolts to the starter
