Default Fuel burning heater support removal

Hi there,

Does someone knows how to remove the Fuel burning heater support?
Mine doesn't have it (FBH) and the support takes a good space i could have more space between the intercooler and coolant hoses...

Thks

Pedro

This sort of question generates another Question

If you need the space to fit something in then OK ,but if it ain't broke don't try and fix it.---

Otherwise a 4 inch angle grinder might be the tool needed ????---

( You obviously can't see any nuts or bolts or you wouldn't be asking the question. )

It is bolted to the inner wing, just ensure your water pipes are nicely secured when you have removed the bracket as the bracket is used to support them.

I remove mine, (the bolts are there and visible, easy enough to remove without issue if I recall). Pedro is removing his for the same reason I did mine. I saw witness marks of rubbing on the pipework where it had spent then 11 years resting and vibrating on it.

I may return it if I ever put the FBH in. Hoses look untidy with it removed but they are now sheathed in a plastic cable tidy wrap and secured so as not to rub on anything.

Different approach with mine. Fitted sponge blocks between pipes and metalwork. Still there and doing the job ten years later.---

Won't have got lost either with the passage if time ( Brackets. ) IF they are ever needed----

Thk u all for the info, my bleeding hose near the intercooler hose was splited and left me in the side of the road, i was very lucky not blowned the head gasket.
Now i've instaled a new one, and don't want that to happen again, so i will remove the FBH support to remove any changes of rubbing.
And i will install a new solution of silicone hose for the intercooler that could need a few more space.

Thks
