#1 Engine side frames

Post by sjclark » Wed Apr 11, 2018 7:29 am

is is possible to remove and replace the engine side frames without removing the engine and gearbox? If it's possible, is it wise to do so???

Hi Steve....yes it is possible....really depends on your work area and ability to remove the engine....first you want the bonnet off......support the car and engine from below and disconnect torsion bars, you can then remove the frames...you then have the option to just replace the frames or remove engine forwards then replace frames and put the engine back in after from above or below.....so you have quite a few options....Steve
