  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery and the transaxle.
  2.  
  3. Unlock the steering and make sure the transaxle is out of gear.
  4.  
  5. Raise and safely support the vehicle and remove the front wheels.
  6.  
  7. Disconnect all the wiring from the starter and the transaxle.
  8.  
  9. Unclip and remove the speedometer cable at the transaxle; do not disassemble the speedometer gear holder.
  10.  
  11. Disconnect the clutch cable from the release arm.
  12.  
  13. Remove the side and top starter mounting bolts.
  14.  
  15. Drain the transaxle oil.
  16.  
  17. Remove the splash shields from the underside.
  18.  
  19. Remove the stabilizer bar.
  20.  
  21. Disconnect the left and right lower ball joints and tie rods ends, using a ball joint remover.
  22.  

Use caution when removing the ball joints. Place a suitable floor jack under the lower control arm securely at the ball joint. Otherwise, the lower control arm may jump suddenly away from the steering knuckle as the ball joint is removed.

  1. Turn the right steering knuckle out as far as it will go. Place a small prybar against the inboard CV-joint and carefully pry the right halfshaft out of the transaxle about 13mm. This will force the spring clip out of the groove inside the differential gear splines. Pull it out the rest of the way. Repeat this procedure on the other side.
  2.  
  3. Attach a suitable chain hoist to the engine and lift the engine slightly to take the weight off the mounts.
  4.  
  5. Disconnect the header pipe at the exhaust manifold.
  6.  
  7. Disconnect the shift lever torque rod. To disconnect the shift linkage forward of the universal joint, slide the pin retainer out of the way and drive out the roll pin.
  8.  
  9. Raise a transaxle jack securely against the transaxle to take up the weight.
  10.  
  11. Remove the bolts from the front transaxle mount at the front engine stiffener.
  12.  
  13. Remove the intake manifold bracket and the rear engine mount bracket.
  14.  
  15. Remove the transaxle housing bolts from the engine torque bracket.
  16.  
  17. Remove the remaining starter mounting bolts and take out the starter.
  18.  
  19. Remove the remaining transaxle mounting bolts.
  20.  
  21. Pull the transaxle away from the engine until it clears the 14mm dowel pins, then lower on the transaxle jack.
  22.  
  23. Separate the mainshaft from the clutch pressure plate and remove the transaxle by lowering the jack.
  24.  

To install:
  1. Install the transaxle on a transaxle jack. Clean and lubricate the clutch release bearing surfaces.

  7. Install the engine torque bracket on the transaxle housing. Torque the mounting bolts to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
  8.  
  9. Loosely install the bolts for the front of the transaxle mount, then torque them to specifications.
  10.  
  11. Install the starter mounting bolts and torque them to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
  12.  
  13. Install the intermediate shaft, the right and left halfshaft.
  14.  
  15. Turn the right steering knuckle/axle assembly outward far enough to insert the free end of the axle into the transaxle. Repeat this procedure on the other side.
  16.  

Make sure the axles fully bottom out. Slide the axle in until the spring clip engages the differential.

  1. Reconnect the shift rod and the shift lever torque rod.
  2.  
  3. Reconnect the lower arm to the ball joints and torque them to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
  4.  
  5. Reconnect the tie rod end ball joints and torque them to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
  6.  
  7. Install the engine and wheel well splash shields.
  8.  
  9. Reconnect the exhaust header pipe.
  10.  
  11. Install the front wheels, lower the vehicle to the ground and tighten the lug nuts to 80 ft. lbs. (110 Nm).
  12.  
  13. Remove the chain hoist from the engine.
  14.  
  15. Install the speedometer cable.
  16.  
  17. Install the transaxle housing bolts and torque them to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
  18.  
  19. Connect the clutch cable to the release arm, then attach the cable housing end to the transaxle bracket.
  20.  
  21. Connect the wiring.
  22.
