didnt make nearly as much progress as we were hoping to today.
started by removing the fmic piping, disconnecting the battery.... got the subframe off, sway bar out, driveshaft out, exhaust and downpipe off. drained the fluids, took the wheels off and disconnected the lower bolts on the strut housings to drop the axles out, but the axles are too long, we couldnt get them out, and when we are within an inch of removing the from the trans, it looks like we're pulling at the seals so i didn't want to damage them. any tips on that?
we got the trans bolts loose, pitch stop disconnected, all plugs disconnected, shifter fork disconnected, started removing the shift linkage, got the bolt out that goes through the bushings, but the arm above it had a bolt going through it that wont come out because its too long and hits the underbody. any tips on that? i was thinking it would come out once we drop the trans down a little, but it can't move much because of the arm still being attached to the shifter above. most of the steps I've read, just say, remove the shifter linkage, then goes to the next step. but doesn'y say its going to cause problems during linkage removal.
please help me out. thanks
