I need to replace the exhaust manifold on my 1985 190e 2.3 due to a large crack. I have removed all nuts from the head and exhaust pipe, and moved the alternator out of the way and still cannot pull the manifold over the studs on the head as the manifold hits the fender wall. Any tips would begreatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
-Michael

You may have to back out the rearmost studs from the head. Two nuts threaded onto stud, spray the studs with penetrating oil and work on the innermost nut to remove the stud. I don't know a whole lot about procedures for this car, but it is hard to imagine that the manifolds won't come off the head w/o fancy DIY engineering. Did you remove the down pipes from the manifolds? If not, that may be the problem. Good luck..
