    mine didnt have a 5mm allen nut near the turbo, it was a standard 7mm head jubalee clip, pipe might have been off at some point. was off easily with a rachet ring spanner.

    Found this guide very useful today. Almost finished it but the light ran out. I've took the 8mm bolt out of the water pipe bracket but it still didn't come away from the block?

    The bolt holds two brackets. I can't remember what's on the other bracket. It could be that this is holding the water pipe bracket and you might have to jiggle it to the front to free it.

    Yeah Ill have a fresh look in the morning - I think time has just simply got it stuck to the block. Walked away before it got really dark and I got a bit ruff with it.

    Had the TIP on but put the clip on the wrong way so it came off again. Another 5-10mm movement in the water pipe and it would be very simple.
