How hard to take out the automatic transmission

Hi,
Probably couple of guys in the form did this before. My question is how hard to take out a transmission? do I need any specail tool or anything? Meanwhile how much does the transmission weight?
Shortly can I do in my driveway durin a weekend?
Thanks

You want the driveway drunk version or the professional way version?

Personally, I would recommend taking the whole engine and transmission out if you have a engine lift. On a 4cyl 190 you can get the engine and tranny out in less than an hour easy

My thought exactly!
Get a lift or rent it. It will be safer and also much easier to bolt the trans to the engine.

Do not I need to take exhaust and some other staff under the car out before tranny? by the way what about putting back? Wish there was a video or pictures explaining how could we do all this.

Exhaust manifold to the exhaust system (four bolts)
Fuel lines (2)
Engine mounts
throttle link
Heater core hose
coolant hoses
Transmission cooling hoses
AC hoses
Harness
Disconnect the drive shaft
remove the trans mount

I guess this should do it...


Alternate solution: Car lift + Trans lift

If you disconnect your ac compressor you can leave it in the bay and remove the engine with out pulling off the lines and catching R12 or 134a to the face.

Just search for removing an engine/trans on youtube. Watch then do it on your car. It's universal. Pretty much if you see wires or plugs connected to the engine, mark them and remove them anything plugged in that leads off the engine gets removed, as well as the exhaust.
