I have a bit of work to do to my 1*2, Sump Gasket, Gearbox and Clutch amongst a few other bits
I was thinking it'd be easier to do this work with the engine out the car.
What is they easiest way to remove the engine and gearbox from the car ?
Can they be removed in one piece ?
Or does the box have to be broken apart from the gearbox to enable the engine to be removed from above with a engine crane ?
I would like to avoid removing and lowering the subframe if i can as i have heard the steering rack is a nightmare to remove and refit.
I heard the PAS hoses/pipes can be a bit of a pain.
Is there anyway i can leave these connected and put to one side to the keep integrity of system ?
And still remove the engine ?
I was planning on :
Draining g/box and cooling system
Remove front bumper, slam panel, headlights, bonnet along with radiator(s) and airbox
Unplugging engine sensors, engine wiring loom c/w ecu and battery
Removing A/C and PAS pipes if needed
Remove engine and gearbox mount bolts
Can anyone think of anything i have missed ?
Or know any tips that may save me time ?
