    Default help need with pulling 407 engine

    Hi all.
    I am intending to swap out the engine on my 407 3.0.
    Problem is I have never pulled an engine before...not too scared of the task...he says with no idea!
    BUT
    Using the service manual I find the entry for " removing and refitting - engine & gearbox"...all good so far.
    When I go to open it, an unrelated page pops up.
    Does anybody have the relevant few pages for pulling an es9 engine?
    All the best,
    Adam

    You'll find these era PSA cars quite intuitive, further there is provision for the AC to be laid aside if it is gassed up already. However expect to remove the front tie member and subframe for most time effective work, as a result you will possibly need a wheel alignment afterwards.

    So all doable without a hoist then?
    Any chance you have the pages from the manual?
    Would really love to follow a sequence and not miss anything rather than disconnecting randomly.

    Thanks Ian,
    The first link looks promising.
    Has anyone subscribed to it? Is it any good?
    The second one seems to be circular....it just goes back to that page.
    Thanks for looking into it for me.

    Have a look here where the suggestion is this:

    "I've searched e-bay but never found anything but the best alternative is to go to the Peugeot Service box site - Service Box - and sign up for free.

    ... Don't forget to download the 2 diagram viewers from the site, so you will then be able to see any documents you have saved. "

    Have fun

    Ian.

    Tie two chain lengths to engine.
    Tie other end to a large tree.
    Start car, release handbrake, put the car in reverse and accelerate as quickly as possible.

    Taking pics as all the parts come off helps a lot.
    And mark all the hoses/wiring with something DURABLE! Boy did I learn that lesson!
