Driveshaft removal tips welcome

Post by rhysaccess »

Howdy all,

Driveshaft removal (entirely), hasn't been as intuitive on the TZI as I'd hoped.

Its part of the engine/gearbox removal set of sequences.

Can someone kindly give me the tips on driveshaft(s) removal?

Thanks & regards,

Rhys

Turns out it was all pretty easy -probably did it in about the same it took me to type this post.

I just like to plan where possible, to save hours on the day.

The two exhaust manifold/down pipe 10mm bolts were less obliging.....
