It is possible, I've done it many times, it's tight but it will work

I usually do - the clearance issue is between the strut tower and the crank pulley - you can pull the pulley off and get a little more room but it doesn't take much work to remove the tranny with the engine then you have all kinds of room

I am finally going to do this When you pull both the engine and trans is it easier to drop everything from the bottom or from the top I was also thinking about pulling everything and detailing the engine compartment

I've always pulled the engine and trans from the top with a engine hoist it's easy . Not to sure how well it will drop from the bottom but if you have a lift it should be easy but without a lift you will have the front of the car way off the ground to clear the engine and transmission good luck yo .

Most times I pull them out the top with an engine hoist, but I think I have pulled the engine and tranny out the bottom.

Me personally, As I've done a few timing belts, I've noticed it's a lot harder to
drop an engine out compared to lifting it out since the engine mounts are more topside than bottom.
Hence why there are lifting lugs on the top of the motor. tongue.gif *in Russian accent* Work better. http://files.jcink.net/uploads/aspire/bunnyd.gif

I mean I find it easier yanking from the top but I suppose if you think it's easier
from the bottom, I'd love to see a How-to: just for that. Just make sure when you
disconnect the hoses and harness' from the bay wall, that you use some masking
tape as ticket to write where the hoses and wiring connects to or you'll have drama
reconnecting it all when you go to put er back in. Best practice, take a LOT of pictures.

Good luck! http://files.jcink.net/uploads/aspire/likemoticon.png http://files.jcink.net/uploads/aspire/joshers2.gif
