View Full Version : Removing IM...I'm stuck.

11-27-2004, 11:15 AM
I'm trying to remove the IM on my 98 ti, and I'm not sure how to deal with all the wires that go down between the #2 and #3 runners of the IM (they come from the little black plastic box that sits on top of the lower IM). Do I have to trace each wire down to its final destination and disconnect it, or am I overlooking some easier way? :_paper:

Maybe it is too early in the morning for me, but what is an IM?
I thought IM was Instant Message. :)

heh...maybe it was too late at night when I posted that.
IM = Intake Manifold

There should be a connector that just unplugs. It is kinda hard to get to but it is there.

Okay, I got it off.
I never did find an easy connector to unplug, but tracing all the wires down and disconnecting them individually wasn't that bad. Much easier to do at 10 am than 2 am. :caffine:
