Hello there! I'm Eurocar ! I will try to assist you as much as I can. Quality research = Quality answer!!
being that this is a manual transmission it is little harder to replace. the transmission mount bolts to the frame must be removed and the transmission needs to be shifted to the passenger side slightly to get the clearance
once that has been done then removal of the wheel is needed . then you will need either a 14mm allen socket or a 17mm allen socket to remove the bolt to hub. then there may be a shield above the inboard joint of the axle which is 6mm allen bolts (x3) then either 8 xzn or 10 xzn (triple square bolts) needs to be removed.(x6)
then the inner part of the axle needs to be shifted to remove the outboard joint from the hub assy.
then reverse order for assy
Are you 100% sure I need to move trans to complete job? I was looking for the exact tools needed because I will need to buy them and I don't want to buy what I don't need.
