You do not have to remove the turbo. On the fuelpump there is a 1 1/4 bolt that needs to be removed(located on the back of the fuel pump toards the firewall). Use a wrench to get it loosened then unswrew it with your fingers. It is a very tight spot but it can be done. Did one 2 weeks ago, once you get that bolt out its a piece of cake. Getting the bolt back in takes alittle bit of patience though.
