I love how 'remove engine' is just a single entry in the process (to be clear, am aware how ElsaWin links to other tasks through links)

I wonder if specialists have worked out that it can be done in situ? Mind you, there's probably a fair list of jobs worth doing when the engine is out in terms of rubber bits, seals etc

Mine was engine out. Luckily, still under used approved main dealer warrantee back then...

Ron is facing the exact same issue with the D3 S8 that was formerly mine. I have seen somewhere that small hands might be able to swap it out, but like Adrian said, its probably best to remove it and use that as an opportunity to address any other stuff.

apparently its not an engine out job for the skilled engineer
its located n/s rear low down behind the exhaust manifold
so its possible to lower the subframe with the engine/box still on
very carefully of cource
maybe the exhaust manifold off too

The manifold may come off with the engine dropped slightly, don't think it can come off as it is. There probably is a work around, just like the PS pipe that Delboy did a write up for. I would change that pipe too if it hasn't been done as it's another failure point

removing engine/transmission for a qualified person with a proper lift and engine cradle isn't that dramatic a task - it's when you're trying to do it on axle stands/ramps using an engine crane in a private garage that options to get to it without removing the engine become of more interest.

Given it's a once in 10 years job I'd say it's much better to have the whole lump out the way so you can assess other jobs at the same time.

Having had a D3 S8 breakdown right outside my house after the power steering hose failed, it pretty much makes it undriveable as the steering is so heavy without assistance. Plus if the pump isn't knackered from the loss of fluid, it certainly will be if you continue driving the pump dry!

Do you have a new motor you're keeping quiet?
