Transmission problem
2004 Hyundai Elantra Two Wheel Drive Manual 95,000 miles

Okay, the transmission looked like it would fit through the space, but it doesn't. Is there some kind of a trick with fishing the transmission out of the engine compartment? Do we need to remove the fly wheel? Do we need to take part of the sub-frame off? Do we need to take another part off from the transmission, or maybe just contort it a certain way?

It already took some time to figure out the trick to getting the transmission to come loose without having to pry it off, and now we've run into this problem. I really need help. This is taking forever, and I feel like we're soooo close.

Thanks!

Hello .. thanks for the donation .. much appreciated

The transmission is not designed to come out through the top of the vehicle .. you really need to remove it from underneath by removing the subframe assembly ? because of the clutch and flywheel you will not have the room to remove from the top !!

Hope this helps

Thank you for the feedback. You really need to reply in this box if you need further assistance. When someone say's they are fishing. This tells me they are using something to pull something out of the sea from above. I have never seen anybody fishing from below the sea?

Please use the reply button below if you need further assistance?
