ok i got the manual off of teamfc3s and so far i have gotten everything it says to get off except the propellershaft the crossmember and the tranny... but is there any way to disconnect the propeller shaft with out having to take it all off?



in the diagram it shows it just slipping off or do i have to follow manuals way of taking the propeller shaft off?

I am not sure I understand that question, but you need to remove the propeller shaft, just to make life easy, I always take the exhaust out back tot he mufflers. The propeller shaft is just 4 bolts on the diff, it isn't really a major removal process.

You don't have to take it off, you can sneak everything by it, but you'll spend more time trying to do that then if you just removed it.

Yea, that and it usually winds up with the tranny sitting on the exhaust system which isn;'t too good for it.

you can prolly get away with just lowering the exhaust, but its more of a pain then just removing it

when you pull the prop shaft out of the trans it will leak oil so be prepared for that too.



I usually tie the prop shaft to the trans through the U joint and around the shifter housing so it can't slide out of the engine, then I unbolt the flange on the differential side and bring the prop shaft out with the trans, no oily mess under the car.
