RE: [DML] Transmission Clearance



I did it in the garage on 4 3 ton jack stands all the way up... mostly by my
self.  if your strong and you drain it well you can usually muscle it down
using a small jack and doing a balancing act.  I don't remember it being
vary hard but you will need more than 2 universal joints, several extensions
a few wrenches, and possibly a dremal and a chisel.  it helps to loosen the
motor mounts and jack up on the drivers side of the engine.  there are a
couple of plates that are very difficult to remove and one of them has a
wire going to it.  because of a failed previous try by the PO (I think) most
of the bolts were rounded or otherwise  mangled.  I ended up destroying both
plates and most of the bolts but have had no adverse issued due to their
absence.

Subject: [DML] Transmission Clearance


I'm going to be replacing my clutch in the offseason... a job I'll
being doing in my own garage, with the car up on jacks. Can
anyone give me an idea of how much clearance I'll need from the
garage floor to the bottom of the car to be able to fully remove the
transmission. 1 Feet, 2 feet, 3 feet or more? I'm assuming a
transmission jack is something that scoots on the floor and I'm
not sure how high that is well, but I'll need to figure that in as
well.

Thanks everyone.
