Here is some bits of notes as I'm helping my buddy Craig...


Have you ever done any kind of engine removal?

How many miles the car with old engine? How many miles on new engine?

I'm getting ready to do one on a E-Class in several days... The best/cool feature is one does not need to take the hood off ... Hats off to the Germans on that.. See the pictures above.. The hood goes vertical-Yayyyy

Chime in, and I can tell you some tips depending if you are taking the engine out only, or tranny and engine together..
