On all models the power unit consisting of the engine and the transmission is removed from a motor compartment up.

Before removal of the engine wash up the engine and a motor compartment. Removal of the engine requires the load-lifting mechanism allowing to lift safely the power unit.

If you remove the engine for the first time, it is necessary to invite the skilled expert. Besides, there are many cases when one person cannot perform at the same time all operations at removal of the engine.
