There is probably a little more air space around the engine in my G-wagen but, I could see fairly well from the bottom. I would just get the gasket, how much could it be? THEN take off the intake with the intention of doing the fix all at once. Removing the intake just too look means that you run the risk of a leak if refitted without new gaskets. Why buy intake gaskets twice?
