    Default 206 GTi engine change...

    OK all you 206 gurus out there, what is the right way to swap engines in a 206 GTi? gearbox and motor out together, or leave the gearbox behind, out the top or out the bottom???

    Best tips appreciated - I'm doing an engine change for a friend who has struggled with it for a while now.

    Hope to get the low down over ready to start work on Saturday.

    Cheers.

    Engine and gearbox together. From underneath.
    Remove steering rack and subframe, put the car up as high as you can get it on stands, drop the engine amd gearbox out.

    A flat trolley is handy to drop it onto, then roll it out the left wheel arch.

    forgot to mentiom, remove hubs. You can leave suspension in, but by that point it's only held by 3 nuts so it might as well come out.

    Looked at all the options and came up with:

    Both lower front control arms out - the only way I could see to disconnect the lower ball joint - just couldn't get it to clear the hub otherwise.
    DS headlight out.
    Tucked the PS pump in where the light was.
    Tied the AC pump under the front bar.
    Engine out the top- no problems.

    Just about the hardest part was the stupid exhaust down pipe bolts!!! Knuckle busting, skin donating stupid piece of design.

    How much wear is reasonable on the clutch fork??

    Now to put the new one back in.
