Just in the process of using this guide - ready to remove the box tomorrow.
Originally the guide said "3 Allen key bolts" and then somewhere further in the replies, it actually turns out to be 4?

I'll double check in the morning before trying to remove - but can anyone confirm?

Yes there are 4 but cannot remember where the last one is haha they're easy to spot so just go round an check all the bolts are out. Also make sure every sensor is off and no wires will snag when the box drops

Cool, thanks for that info.

It was 4 allen bolts - as opposed to the 3 stated on the first page.

Also, I found it pretty impossible to do with the drivers side driveshaft in. So this had to come out.

hiya all. cheers for the great guide.

at the last step. trying to drop the box - doesn't seem to want to go though!
there's a 1cm gap at the top and nothing at the bottom.

Seems the cover plate on the far side away from the engine is conflicting with the tray that holds the mounting bolt and stopping the box from moving away from the engine. I've tried to take the plate off but there's not enough room.

Any bright ideas folks?

Also - where's the best place to have the jack contacting the box?

Best Wishes

Done!

So the key seemed to be to drop the engine and box together a far way - perhaps 3/4inches on the passenger side. So the entire lot is attached by drivers side engine mount and 2 jacks. The whole lot seemed to need to be on a slight tilt though passenger side lower than drivers to clear the mounting bracket. Then hours of messing until the box slides off!!
Cheers again

Oh and the bearing was shot to pieces. Literally. Ball bearings falling out all over the place as soon as there's a gap between box and engine! fun fun

do you have to remove the whole passengers side wishbone? mines has the two m8 bolts holding the antiroll bar to the wishbone via a aliminium bracket which tend to snap so i would rather leave the wishbone on the body.

Wishbone can be left on, just remove it off the strut by removing the pinch bolt
