I actually am going to approach this a little differently and tell me any unforeseen problems that may occur. I also have another question which is how do you discconnect the connector at the top of the transaxle in the bell housing?
Now as to the engine removal, my plan is to disconnect the rack and pinion, tie it up, and then lower the subframe transaxle assembly. I will disonnect the strut and lower the wheel assemblies and hang the brakes from the vehicle. I am in the process of disconnecting everything that needs to be disconnected prior to lowering. I plan to remove the tie rod joint from the rack and pinion.
