asking the obvious are the gearchange cables disconnected? supension cross member removed, starer out. both front and rear mounts removed, with engine supported on jack or some type of support, lower about three to four inches and pull gear box towards the back of the car whilst getting someone to pry box away from engine. the actuator needs to be removed and any other bolts that are over the box. good luck and if all else fails as most of the bits are disconnected for the extra hour your just as well to drop the engine out, if you label every thing you disconnect you cant go wrong,

I have changed clutch set and i must say that it wasn't easy. You must lower the engine down to pull the gearbox. To lower the engine down you must detach a lot of engine equipment. To change the seal you must detach oil pan.

I have made some fotos during my work. I will post them for a moment. If you have some precise questions..just ask.

I did my 4wd clutch yesterday.
Did it without removing the engine and it is a pig of a job.

It is possible to do it this way, but there isn't any real benefit over dropping the lot out. Time and effort are about the same, if not more.

There are a couple of locating dowels, but that's not what makes it hard to split the box from the engine/transfer case.

The output shaft runs right the way through the transfer case and is in effect three shafts, a long thin one inside a shorter wider one that's inside a stumpy fat one.

The removal can hang up on these and it does take a lot of pulling and jemmying to free them.

Same goes for getting the box back on, the short shaft lines up ok, but the middle shaft can hang up half way in, getting someone to rotate the prop shaft helps the splines line up.

Then it's a matter of more shoving, jemmying and jiggling until the studs are through enough to bolt up.

My Dad and I did the clutch (and timing belt) in my daughters 99 AWD this week. This job is NOT for the unskilled or weak willed! We dropped the engine/transaxle just enough to get to it so we didn't have to mess with that wiring harness that comes out of the firewall at passenger side foot well, passes between the valve cover and intake plenum, and ties into the fuse box and then goes back into the right side firewall without any disconnects. Not that I plan to EVER do this again, but, how are you guys who are completely removing engines handling this?
