While there.

Oil return pipe bolt tends to get loose and leaks oil on heat exchanger producing that 964 specific smell that my wife hates:

here's real life pic:

To get there you'll need to drop heat exchangers .... sooner you get to remove them, easier your future life will be. Nuts tend to rust & studs can break. Sooner you replace them - better.

In my case some nuts get off, some nuts got stuck and I ended up with studs. Also I had to "fabricate" 13mm wrench to get exhaust nuts. I used HF 12/13mm combo offset wrench as source:

Exchangers out:

Now you have access to 36mm nut on return pipe. In most cases end nut on the pipe get's loose. But also, there coupling and crush washer. Also, in my case Oil relief bolt was loose also:

Here are parts for washer etc. I'll cover upper part later:
