    Hello!
    Timing belt went to hell, causing the vents to hit the pistons... 5 vets are broken and wont close.
    Got a new engine and are going to swap engine.

    What is the easiest way to remove and insert a new engine? i have removed the head and exhaust manifoil and fuelrails etc...

    also, i dont have a car lift...

    Thank's for all advices!

    I'd be taking the whole front end off and using a heavy duty trolley jack, some wood, a couple of mates and roll it out the front..

    There isnt a easier way to do it? i dont want to remove so much as i done have any special experience with this..
    one said i should lift the engine out together with the gearbox, removing driveshafts...

    but thank's for the tip! :)

    Pull it from the front rather than up and over.

    Evey time.
