So after the overheat from prior post...I'm tearing down the engine today. Stuck at fuel line where it is connected to metal fuel rail lines (duel fuel rail and injectors) at back of engine. It looks to be a quick release but Im not having any luck disconnecting it. Im covering every key on my computer with oil and antifreeze writing this so if anybody has the answer please post back so I may pull the lower intake before the day is up. Thanks again for all your help. No rovering today...

Thanks rrtoldhall...it is actually the shops comp....I feel bad. So disconnect further down the line rather than at the 90 degree connection directly where the steel meet the plastic? Thanks again for the help, best Range Rover site on the web! Where else can you get replys in less than 5 min!

So I found it is possible to remove the lower intake without removing the fuel line from the injector rail assembly. I"m sure that is not what the shop manual says to do but save yourself some time and leave it connected if you like. Also found that both rocker covers can stay put as well just loosen the four interior rocker cover bolts up enough to let the lower manifold slip past. Ahh the joy of sort cuts. Thanks for the quick replies though rrtoadhall.

that was going to be my suggestion too.. and nitrile gloves are a treat, peel them off and clean hands! (if only a bit pruny from sweat...)
