Hi there i finally got my drive shaft out as i didn't know how to take the flexy joint out, just so you know use a flat head and ply the backside of the shaft (dif end) as there's a pipe that goes into the flexy joint bout 2 1/2 mils.

any way now im stuck i dotn know if i should drop my engine to get to the top gearbox bolts as there no way in hell i can get there or is there a trick that any one knows? to get the gear box out?

you can either pull the engine and box out as one, lift the engine and box forward after removing all the securing bolts etc and undo or remove all the firewall sound proofing and scratch around and eventully get them out!
