you have to have a special tool to get the radio out. There should be a screw on each side of the front of the radio, with plastic flaps covering them, you may be able to find something to unscrew them, but they do make a tool for it, as far as the other stuff, if you need a manual then you shouldnt be working on your own car

When you get the head off make sure you get it pressure tested for porosity it’s very common with M20 heads they also used to snap head bolt that would smash the head under the cam.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings

why are you taking off of the crank pully? anyways, it should come off with a big air gun, if not you can try a breaker bar

he said the crank shaft pully bolt which doesnt even hold the pully on, it holds the crank gear on. the pully itself is held by six 8m bolts. i dont know what you are talking about a puller for, the pully slides off and the gear will also once you get the pully off.

Hi.
Use only NEW cylinderhead bolts!! Always use new bolts when you’ve had the head of.


This is the order in witch to tighten the bolts:

12 | 10 | 4 | 2 | 6 | 8 | 14
----------------------------
13 | 7 | 5 | 1 | 3 | 9 | 11

First 30 Nm, then 90 degrees, then an other 90 degrees.

A used head in OK condition isn’t too expensive I think. I would buy one, change the head and if the old one is OK, sell it?

Hope your back on the road soon
