Instructions

    • 1 Open the hood and disconnect the battery ground cable. Set it aside, ensuring that it does not touch metal. Still working in the engine compartment, remove the two upper converter housing-to-engine bolts. Unplug the neutral safety switch wiring harness, located at the back of the engine compartment, at its inline connector.
    • 2 Remove the transmission fluid filler tube and dipstick using the appropriate socket or wrench. The bolt is attached to the cylinder head. Jack up the van using the floor jack and support it with the jack stands.
    • 3 Slide the drain pan under the transmission pan. Loosen the bolts (do not remove them yet), starting at the back of the pan and working your way toward the front. The pan will tip as the bolts are loosened, allowing the fluid to drain into the pan. Keep loosening the bolts until the fluid no longer spills out of the pan. Remove the bolts and the pan, taking care to keep it over the drain pan, as not all the transmission fluid will drain out. Reinstall the pan with two bolts on the back of the pan to temporarily hold it in place.
    • 4 Push the drain pan forward, toward the converter. Remove the converter drain plug access cover from the bottom of the converter housing, using the appropriate socket. Remove the converter nuts that attach the converter to the flexplate. You will only be able to remove a couple of nuts at a time, so place a wrench on the crankshaft pulley bolt and turn the crankshaft a few inches. This will turn the converter so that you can access more bolts. Repeat until you get all the converter-to-flexplate bolts out. Look for the converter drain plug as you are removing the nuts. Remove the drain plug to allow the converter to drain. Reinstall the drain bolt.
    • 5 Disconnect the driveshaft at the axle using the appropriate sockets. Move the drain pan under the extension housing. Slide the driveshaft toward the rear of the E-350 van and away from the transmission. Install the seal installation tool in the extension housing to keep all the fluid from leaking out.
    • 6 Disconnect the speedometer cable from the extension housing on the transmission by unscrewing it. Disconnect the linkage rods from the levers on the transmission using the appropriate socket or screwdriver.
    • 7 Disconnect the oil cooler lines from the transmission using the appropriate line wrench. Loosen the clamp on the vacuum diaphragm using the appropriate screwdriver or socket, depending on the type of clamp used. Pull the vacuum line off. Remove the vacuum line-retaining clip.
    • 8 Loosen the nut for the cable on the starter. Remove the cable, then put the nut back on the stud. Remove the three starter bolts, then pull the starter off the engine. Disconnect the downshift linkage and manual cables using the appropriate sockets or screwdriver. Remove the two bolts that attach the rear engine mount and insulator. Remove the six bolts that hold the crossmember on the side rails.
    • 9 Slide the jack under the transmission and jack it up enough to raise the transmission so you can pull the crossmember out. Pull the crossmember out. Secure the transmission to the jack (or two jacks, if you need to use two jacks) using the chain. Remove the rest of the bolts in the converter housing. Pull the transmission out from under the E-350 van.

I'm replacing the clutch. I have removed all the bolts and separated the the housing slightly but cannot totally separate the two. I'm thinking I may be missing a step.


in the same area of the bolt wholes there will be dowels sometimes the gearbox just needs to be pryed to seperate also make sure the driveshafts are completely removed from the gearbox shift cables and hydraulic line is removed mountings are removed completely out of the gearbox way.sometimes the loom or water hoses routed over the gearbox can restrict and its common for the cv joint flange on the gearbox differential to hook on the metal shim plate thats sandwiched between the engine and gearbox

Steps to removing a transmission from a GMC ENVOY 2004 V6, 4WD.


Park the vehicle in a clean dry well lit place. Work with safety in mind. Its always good to take pictures as you strip the/ a assembly. Refer back to pictures if you get stuck. Dis-connect the battery. Remove the gear linkages and speedo-drive and power cables from the gearbox. Remove the starter motor. Loosen the propshaft. Mark the yokes of the propshaft- for upon installation to avoid an unbalanced propshaft. Loosen the centre bearing. Remove the propshaft. Remove the cross member underneath the gearbox if there is one. Loosen bolts around the gearbox to cylinder block. Use a gearbox jack to support the gearbox. Take the bolts out from the gearbox to cylinder block. Pull gearbox backwards. Lower the gearbox. This is pretty much the standard way of removing gearbox. Note, there might be a transfer box, normally with 2 propshafts. Mark the yokes. Remove propshafts, transfer box and then gearbox. Remember to always work safe.

How do i remove the gearbox from a hyundai atos prime automatic?


Support the engine, remove ball joints from the lower control arms, disconnect the tie rod ends, remove all cables and wiring from the box. Remove the transaxle or sub frame. Then only the gearbox can be removed.

Clutch , presure plate and gearbox remove


You need the right equipment and knowledge to do this job there are a lot of cables wires etc that need to be removed before the gearbox can be loosened and removed.
There are also a lot of special tools required and the job is best done on a ramp or pit to gain access.
Trying to do this on the ground would be difficult and very dangerous also the engine needs to be suspended when the gearbox mounts are removed.
It is impossible to remove the clutch pressure plate, plate and hydraulic bearing on the C4 without removing the gearbox.
Take it to a garage/ clutch specialist.
