Is that the only way to remove the transmission?
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 7 years ago.
This is the way ford states to do it and this is the same most all techs choose to do it. if you choose to do it in some other way then you could remove both the engine and trans together out the bottom of the car. neither will come out the top.
