Hi .. Im in the middle of doing an engine change as per subject line BUT this car is an auto... nIve not actually had the motor out of one of these before - Im just wondering if anyone has.... Any tis/tricks etc??????

I do know the driveshafts were a major pain to get out... and whilst its ready now to pull out it does look like theres not going to be enough room in the engine bay to get the thing out. Not helped by a welded in battery tray etc..

As I say....... Any ideas - please ????

Thanks !
Mike

ps.. I posted this elsewhere but Im not sure it was in the right place so Ive put it here too.... sorry if its wrong!

it would be a better idea to lift the car up & put it on stands , drop the front subframe out & then drop the engine & box out from underneath .
