    Drop the subframe or pull the motor to change transmission

    FWIW: The dealer pulled the tranny/motor out of the top and another shop dropped the subframe to do the trans in my cutlass.

    from what i understand i only have to remove 1/2 the subframe, which is the L shape on the drivers side rear, and then unbolt the tranny and all and she will slip right out. I just need to support the motor

    i just removed the engine/trans and whole assembly from a 92 euro 3.4L i ended up cutting the tranny cooler lines and fuel lines, so it may not be the same for you, i didnt need those parts, i did alteast unbolt the a/c lines.

    i removed the whole assembly at a u-pull-it in 4 hours using hand tools and crank jacks.

    if i ever do it again, its all coming out the bottom again, very easy to do, i even removed the master cylinder and the radiator.

    oh just to rub it in some of you guys faces, the whole assembly only cost $200 with 115k on it and ran excellent.

    Thats right. i have worked with my friend and his dad (who owns a tranny shop) and have seen many a tranny come out of FWD vehicles (Mostly Fords and Chryslers). depending on the car, it will probably take about 1/2 an hour to remove and 3/4 to put back in.

    Since you have to take everything off and put everything back on dont you think it would take more that a couple hours?

    Yea, but this is a tranny expert who has done this several times a day for over 15 years. And this is just to do a direct swap, without any major fuck ups. ie. breaking bolts.
