96 f-250 7.3 turbo removal I'm stuck!!!!!

Ok guys I'm sure u all know how much of a paint it is to remove a turbo from one of these trucks. Well I'm stuck. I started to remove the turbo but I jus cant get it out. I removed the 4 nuts that connect to the turbo to the manifold but after I took the nuts of only 3 of the studs came out there's one stud that didn't wanna come out!! Could that be what it's holding on to that won let it go? I took off the 4 bolts that bolt down the brass gold bracket that hold the turbo down on the bracket but it jus wont come out. It's really wiggly and loose a lot but it jus feels like something small is holding on to it. Plz help

Welcome to FTE

Try to loosen the uppipes down at the exhaust manifolds. If that one stud is what's holding it, maybe that will give it enough wiggle room to get it loose.
