does anybody have any tips on how to remove the two bolts that hold the big coolant pipe onto the back of the motor? i know theres a couple on the side of the motor that i'll have to take out also, but i'm just not sure how to maneuver my hands/tools to get to those bolts.. any help would be appreciated! =]

the easiest way is to remove the cowl panel between the windshild and the firewall, remove the wipers and a few pastic screws under the lower w/s weatherstrip. Mark the blade positions with a piece of tape for reassembly. The bolts in question are torex internal, forgot the size...? small ones, use 1/4 in drive tools. The pipe is sealed with a large thin O ring . Your having fun....
