Default Changing an exhaust manifold gasket

Hi,
Could anyone give me a step by step guide to changing the exhaust manifold gasket on a 300TDI Defender i am sure its not that hard but i don't want to fook it up.
got to start somewhere!
Still got oil getting on the engine block, the rocker cover ain't leaking i cannot feel anything blowing around the head, after much reading on here i cannot think of what the hell else it could be!!
Its not causing a problem just getting on my tits

Been looking into this myself as I think mine is blowing.
One gasket for both inlet and exhaust (ERR3785)300Tdi
So James Martin tells me its only a few bolts and you don't need to undo the downpipe if you are just changing the gasket. You do need to remove the inlet manifold though.

check out www.landroverweb.co.uk and download your manual.

Cheers currymunster,
nearside of my engine is slowly getting covered in oil it does not seem to make any difference in performance but looks shite and i assume that it cannot be doing it any good? i have read around that bolts have a habit breaking of which is putting me off doing it as is my daily motor as well and i don't even own a torque wrench!!! Bloody amateur i know!!!!!!

bolts bont have a habit of breaking ,and you should be able to refit manifolds without a torque wrench ,4 bolts hold inlet then you can get at exhaust nuts x7

Thanks James. Voice of reason as always it just pisses me of when two local Land rover garages told me the same about the bolts shearing off and having to drill them out and re thread them which would cost a lot!
Is this going to damage my engine or just make a bloody mess which it is doing quite well!!!!
