    Default 206 Gti 180 gearbox removal

    Hello all,

    I'm in the middle of removing my gearbox and have gone through the effort to document my steps during the process as I want to put a guide up as couldn't find one myself.

    I have removed a lot of stuff now and I'm at the point where I have removed the gbox mount, starter, passenger driveshaft, clutch fork thingy, gearbox stick selector unit thingy, all bolts, cables, clips and brackets. Also unbolted the mount for the driver side driveshaft even though the driveshaft is still. I can not see anything else stopping me from physically pull the gbox off. Am I missing something? The only possible thing I was thinking was pull the driver side drive shaft fully out but still think that seems like overkill and a lot of work

    Accidentally hit post before actually asking for much needed advice. Any help much appreciated.

    Am I being too soft in trying to separate it? I have attacked it with a rubber mallet and got no where fast.

    I removed the d/s driveshaft but it still won't separate. I must be missing something but I can't seem to figure this out on my own. Any ideas?

    Yep, both are out. But the gbox still won't separate.
