    Why did you not add your other thread here instead of starting a new one which could be interlinked? Did you get XYZ switch back in the correct place. What damage to loom?

    Look in RAVE for details. You can't just whip it off and slap it back. Don't work that way.

    What was the space like when doing your flex plate? a few folks on here myself included are looking at having them done it would be good if you could give us a bit of an idea how you did it :)

    Remove gearbox and torque converter. Remove flex plate. Refit new, refit gearbox and torque converter. Hows that? :D:D:D

    Car will need lifting if you want to get box and transfer box out. Moving it back supported is an option. But car still needs lifting for access. Trying it with suspension set high would be a fools game. And difficult unless you are a midget.

    It was a complete bugger really 2 bricks under each back wheel. Its on 1in higher coils. So was sat high enough for me to near sit under anyway Left front end down props chassis member off. Bottle jack under sump of engine then trolly jack and a small sheet of 3/4 ply on bolts and a ratchet strap over it moved the box back about 4in clearance between box and the spacer. Im only 5ft10 and built like a pole so was able to squeeze in. Then jack box up and make sure its going square on i got one pic of box underneath [​IMG]

    It had shatterd had put a hole in bellhousing. Thats why i got her. 400 for her with mot till june was my father in laws where i live. Was 50 odd for plate 60 in oils 100 for a 2nd hand box but good bellhousing used that. then 1800 on insurance haha. No issues went into aberdeen and back last night 100 mile round trip no loss of oils or new leaks. Good creep all gears work well after reading horror stories about converter seals f'ing up it went well. Id have struggled more if i wasnt so skinny or nimble. Or if had air suspension i can imagine its a nightmare. Read a workshop manual a fair few times says upto 99 and 99 onwards two different bits and ways mine wad 99 onwards way even though its a 96

    If you were just replacing the flex plate and not the bell housing what sort of time would you say that would take?
