Those things can be (make that ARE) a pain.
I've found it essential to remove the shroud in order to replace the radiator.
Were you intending to run the engine without the shroud installed? That's not necessarily a good idea, both from a cooling and safety point of view.
Would it be possible for you to repair the shroud? It's quite rewarding to patch something up with pop rivets (use with washers) and save some inconvenience as well as $.
Once you figure out what holds the washer bottle in place you tend to remember. Skinned knuckles and broken parts are a great teacher.
Best of luck.
Make sure that any door rubbers are removed off the plastic trim.
Being very careful, grab a hold of front or back of trim and lift away from panel. These are clipped onto the panels with plastic clips,
Sometimes they break , but most of the time they come away just fine.
Dont pull too hard or the whole trim might snap
are you sure that you changed the ASD relay? that code is for no signal from the ASD to the PCM. Check that you have constant 12v at the relay base and that you have switched voltage when the key is on at the relay base, then make sure you have continuity to ground at the relay base. If the relay clicks when the key is turned on then the internal coil is making and should be sending a signal to the PCM when the key is turned on.
Most ignitions you will need to remove the plastic shroud around the steering colum. Have a good look at the complete barel & mount & you should find a small hole. When the key is in a certain position (usualy accessories) there is a little pin in that hole. You push the pin in with small allenkey, jewler screwdriver etc... & the barel will just slide out.
Purchase replacement part first.
If you need motor only it might come without regulator.
Either way when you have the new part(s)
It will give you an idea of what has to be removed
look for plastic covers (round) or screws and remove them under the covers are screws also remove those.
neer door handle there is always a screw or tab.
on the pull handle (big one) there are 1-2 large screws remove those.
look near mirror area and remove any plastic covers. may be tabbed or screwed in??
usually lifting lightly and looking under the trim with a flashlight will tell you what is holding it.
remove plastic from around handle area.
pry lightly on the bottom and see if you have to lift up or straight out.
either way usually an up and out motion is required at same time.
tabs lift out easily while the push in plastic tabs may be more strong. if they stay in the door remove them later with trim tool. looks like a dandelion puller. then put them back on the door trim whre they came from for later installation.
If door has plastic film pull it away from the door and don't get the black stuff on you. Sticky!
Then find if regulator is bolted in or pop riveted in.
remove bolts or pop rivets and dont pinch your fingers but separate window glass from regulator.
This is the fun part you will have to find a hole to pull it out of. usually there is only one choice. and that is the biggest hole there.
look for the black box on the fender under the hood.you will see a tube around 3/4 inches round that goes to the throttlebody.Un snap the 4 snaps and pull the plastic top off and you will see the filter.
Take it ot a parts store and have them look at it sounds like there is a clip or pin missing to hold it togetheror look at it after you put it together and see if there is a hole for a pin or a groove for a clip
One quick fix, that may or may not help....Under your shifting boot, turn the collar that holds in your shifter, it should release, and let you take the shifter up. There is a plastic ball on the end, see that it isn't worn, and look at the part that the plastic ball goes into. Too much wear here can cause a problem. These are available!
If not...synchro's are very difficult to replace in a standard transmission.
they are very tricki even good experience mechanics have hard time some time to do it, just try to look for any bolts or screws arrown and remove it, or they have like snap in plastic rivets arrown the edges for the panel, insert a flat screw driver from the edges and pry a little to pop out the rivets
