Hello, I'm Cam. Please include all the details about your issue so I can accurately advise you. I cannot see your vehicle so please be detailed.
With the air filter housing out you can use an extension and 18mm socket to get at the bolts. There is just enough room ot get them out with out removing the other parts.
the electric harness is in the way
Move the harness out of the way.
Unhook the ends and remove the clips to move it out of the way
ok how do i get to the bolts in back?
A wrap of electrical tape on the head of the bolt to hold it in the socket

They are there. HArd to see, use a small mirror to see from the end.

hi please describe removal of bolts again unable to with current directions
Sorry I had to run out and get my son from school.
Yes you drop this out the very bottom, but honestly, the easiest way is to drop the engine, transmission and and subframe as an assembly.
do i drop it before i remove the bolts from the houseing? i cant seem to fit anything in the top or back to get to the housing bolts?
im on the ground i do have a cherry picker type engine hoist. just wrenches and sockets. do i need anythingelse?
change my transmission
you have to take the whole engine out
ok i have the car in the air. if i drop the frame what about the wires are they all hooked to the frame?
will i be able to work on the top bolt to free the trans.?
there is no way to get to the top bolts without dropping the whole engine?
if i could take them out i could drop the trans and support the motor.
oh do i need special tools?
you took off the bolts form the top?
yes, no other way to get the trnasmission out.
how do i get the fuel lines on the plentum off?
metal 2 together
sorry to take up so much of your time,just stuck between rock and hard place
There is a special tool that you can get from any part store to release them.
does this tool release them at the same time? i have a tool it does one at a time. its not working maybe im doung something wrong
Each line is a different size and it only does one at a time. YOu need to press it together, then insert the tool and rotate it a bit then pull.
thans ill try that. is there anyway for me to get you back,when i need you?
