Nope, it is dark grey.afox04 said:...If you look outside, the sky is blue.
I replaced the coil packs on a 2001 Range Rover using this guide and it saved pulling the top off the inlet manifold.I just had to replace the coil packs this past weekend (P0304 code).
But ended up not having to remove the upper intake manifold.
Here's how I did it.
The objective is to remove the SAI hard pipe between the EGR valves, once this is gone there is enough room to remove the coil packs one at a time without resorting to removing the upper intake manifold.
After removing the throttle cabling, vacuum lines, flexi SAI lines and other stuff to make it easier to get to the back of the engine while lying on top of it. Next remove the bracket that holds the main wiring harness to the engine, then disconnet the SAI hard pipe from the EGR valves and and now you can set to work on the bracket that hold this pipe to the block.
If you remove the 2 nuts first that hold the bracket to the pipe you can then get at the 2 bolts that hold the bracket to the block. Once this bracket is out of the way you can wiggle the pipe out over the top of the wiring harness. Once that's out of the way you have enough room to undo the 3 bolts per coil pack and you can wiggle the coils out and replace them without any trouble.
Hope this helps.
Only basic tools needed 8mm, 10mm sockets (use 1/4" as space is a bit tight) and wrenches, screw driver, a couple of hose clamps, a mirror on a "stick" helps to see what's going on back there and a magnet on a "stick" helps re-capture errant nuts.
