Remove the air intake pipe. There are two pipe clamps located at either end, depending on your model it may be a spring-based clamp or screw clamp.
Disconnect the Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) Hose from the turbo inlet elbow. This is done by squeezing the sides and lifting upwards. You can now spin the connector away.
The turbo inlet can now be removed. Turn clockwise approximately 1/4 turn and it will loosen from the turbo.
