Hey everyone,

I have a 1995 2,5 petrol T4 which I bought used a while ago.
When you are sitting still with the engine at idle, there is quite a strong smell of exhaust coming through the air vents, and when you cold start the car, it has a ticking noise from the engine.
Now it's not the valves that are ticking, so I believe that it's the exhaust manifold or gasket. I haven't been able to find any obvious cracks in the manifold, so I need to take it off and repair it or replace i.

But does anyone here have any idea on how you change the manifold on a 2,5 petrol? I sure hope I don't need to take the engine out.
Any help or advice would be much appreciated :)
