    I've removed mine, it's a pain in the series 2 car. Unless you have some luck with a ratchet/socket/universal that some how fits, it takes a 7/16 wrench and 1,000,000 1/8th turns, because of space constraints.

    Is there a panel from inside the wheel well to get to it? I could see one.

    Re: GTP intercooler change?

    I just had mine out a few days ago.
    Driver rear wheel gets removed.
    Inner wheel well cover gets removed. Most likely the riv nuts will be rusted on the bottom 2 and you'll have to grind them out.
    There are 4 studs that are in the car that holds the intercooler. I had to remove the 2 bolts that hold the fender pass thru flange in order to get enough wiggle room to pull the intercooler off the studs even with the hoses lose.

    And Deryk is right...I'm learning to HATE all of the fine thread bolts on these cars but I used a stubby ratchet and a gear drive socket

    Re: GTP intercooler change?

    Decided to change the intercooler today.
    1. There is a panel to take off inside the left rear wheel well. Only six 10/32 bolts to remove it.
    2. Here is the panel
    3. On the back side of the panel was written #38 for some reason.
    4. This is what is inside behind the panel...intercooler and oil cooler.
    5. Oil cooler and lines

    #6 The new and the original intercoolers side by side. New one on the right.
    #7 Fins look the same to me.
    #8 The original one had a rubber strip between it and the oil cooler. So I thought I should add one to the new one.
    #9 Found the right stuff at NAPA.
    #10 Was a ----- putting the new one in. But it's in.
    #11 Went to the store to get the rubber stuff from NAPA so stopped by the hardware store and bought new stainless steel bolts and washers.
    Finished!
