    Default Xantia V6 auto transmission removal

    Does anyone know if the 4HP20 gearbox can be removed from beneath the car without removing the sub frame that the suspension is mounted on?
    It looks like there is not enough room as the drive shaft side will not clear the sub frame
    Haynes says it is done that way for the 4 cylinder motors but I don't know about the V6 it just doesn't appear to have the room

    I can't see how it would be feasible. Even the AL4 is a squeeze.

    If you unbolt the rack from the subframe, there's not too much left - pipes can be prised off with their clips attached. Putting in an ML5T?

    Can't say I've tried it in a Xantia, but in a 406, I wouldn't even consider trying - it takes less than an hour to remove engine and gearbox (as a unit) out from the top.

    I've seen it done on a V6 by a very experienced Citroen mechanic, but it is rather tight and you'll want a hoist. Given the quantity of now brittle rubber and plastic, you are probably better off carefully removing the engine and gearbox and then doing the split. Even then, expect to break half a dozen bits of plastic, especially some of the cooling system.

    Thanks fellows
    I will try the engine/transmission out the top
    It will only take removing the engine mounts as everything else is done
    Thanks again
