Proceedure for engine removal

Does anyone know where I can find a proceedure to remove the engine? I know the bentley's are out there but I was wondering if some postings are out there somewhere...

Pretty straight forward. I know this is not the answer you are looking for but.... Just get under there and and look. Not that tough. I had mine out in under 2 hours. Front motor mount, 2 tranny mounts, axle bolts, anti freeze lines, fuel lines and harness. And some other things..

jaay, I have a feeling you're a much better mechanic than me...it's not a hard job, but it took me about 6 hours to get mine out....

with the rear bumper off, you won't need much clearance. I used 4 regular jack stands, and placed extra stands (inches from the car) incase anything fell...I raised the stand to the highest level, and had no problems.

I put a piece of duct tape on everything I disconnected, and put a number it...so if I disconnected a wire, I would tape both sides, then write on the the tape #7..then, in a notebook, i would write #7, electrical front passengers side, top of engine. Took longer, but putting everything back together was much easier.

I used a floor trans jack to lower the engine. Best of luck!

Take off the intake manifolds too that makes things real easy and solves a lot of clearence problems.

So I began the engine removal process. Things I have finihed so far:

Rear bumper cover removed
exhaust removed
sway bar removed along with the other supports in the area
drained oil
drained three anti-freeze hoses
disconnected battery

I was looking around for the fuel lines and cant seem to find the connection points. I also need to figure out how to disconnect the linkages to the trans.Long way to go. Any ideas or information would be greatly appreciated.

I would like to take the whole drive line out together since I will be replacing the clutch. Do you see any issues with that?
