    And lower it down, easing the shafts away from the diff as you lower it

    Install is a reversal of removal, put your new shafts in now if you have to.

    Now, on to removal of the gear box itself.

    Before letting the cross member down it easier to remove the converter bolts and a couple of the bellhousing bolts.

    To remove the converter bolts I prefer to use a swivel head box spanner and a large ratchet and 24mm socket to turn the engine over, you access the bolts just above the rear part of the X member on the front of the gearbox, there are 6 17mm bolts and you will have to carefully feel with your fingers as the engine is turned over for the bolt to come in line

    You will find that if you can hit the spanner with a sharp movement the bolts should release, if not let the engine turn back round so the socket is touching the gearbox housing and this should let you free the bolt, repeat for all six bolts.

    When they are all out the converter should move back into the trans slightly.

    Next remove the trans dipstick from the inlet plenum and just pull it up into the engine bay

    Before you let the trans mount go remove these 2 bolts that go in from the front, they are 14mm (on the oily side)

    Support the trans and undo the X member from the chassis rails and you will have a clear view of the bellhousing bolts from the rear of the box (you will need a long extension to reach them)

    Leave the 2 17mm side bolts till last as these are the easiest to get to.

    Make sure you have undone the 2 cooler pipes that go to the drivers side of the box (next to exhaust in this pic) and carefully lower the trans. Unclipping and plugging the wiring loom that goes to the trans

    It is VERY heavy and nose heavy with the converter full of oil.

    You have to now decide if you are going to change the loom to a 6 spd one !!!!!! A lot of work and not 100% needed imo. The auto loom will work just fine with a few small adjustments, we will be cutting most of the plugs off and joining 2 wires so the starter works and reverse lights function, the stock speed sensor plug fits straight on to the six speed sensor. The black plug is the speed sensor plug and the big grey plug is the one with the wires we need to alter. (more on this later)

    Finally for this session remove the drive plate from the crankshaft and you can also remove all the trans oil cooler pipes etc.

    Hope this makes life easier, later guys now waiting for parts for the next installment.
