    Cannot remove DISA valve

    I removed the two T40 torx bolts and even the nut beneath it (which I wasn't sure I was supposed to do).

    I have put a ton of force on this thing and it won't come out.

    I pull on it laterally away from the engine block. I get a little movement. I have tried prying it with a screw driver to get a little play and I have saturated it with WD40. I have tried actuating the butterfly by using my finger and pulling the level to no avail. Does anyone have any advice?

    Please!

    Re: Cannot remove DISA valve


    There are THREE torx bolts holding the DISA valve in place. One is kind of hidden.

    Don't feel bad, I did the same thing for about 10 minutes, until I thought, "Hmmmm.... maybe there is a third torx bolt".

    Of course, none of the diagrams show it.

    There are two bolts - one on each side of the opening, and then a third on the body of the valve itself. See link below for more pictures.

    If you do not yet have a Bentley manual, I highly recommend it.

    Good Luck!

    P.S. - my photo album mistakenly said two bolts as well. I just yanked the hood on my car - there are three.

    Good Luck!

    I just changed my y duct today and had to remove my DISA valve. I only had to remove two hex bolts. There is a third but didnt seem related.

    V-8 versus I-6

    The I-6 has three torx bolts. Sounds like you have a V-8. No Y-duct on a six!

    For some reason the link was removed from my post above.

    Here is a photo

    Here is the album

    The new Roadly is very oddly formatted. What is 9 divided by three? What is all that about? No more picture links or hyperlinks, either. And they appear to be removed from my older posts...
