    Diesel you will need a new manifold gasket. Take off neg battery terminal 300 tdi take out the bolt securing the dip stick tube to engine and remove, remover clip holding inlet hose, and you may also need to unbolt the EGr pipe which connects to inlet manifold also gaskets, then remove upper and lower bolts holding manifold and take off manifold
    200 tdi pretty much same thing

    Not sure whether your enquiry is regarding how to clean it or how to take it off, but if it's the former, I had mine acid dipped with a load of other bits the other week and it came up like new.

    Don't know if this is any good to you? You'll need to remove the exhaust manifold too, because there is one gasket that does both manifolds.
