Replace complete fuel line assembly in a Silverado z71 1500 4 whl. drive


Some of these drive shafts require removal of cross member to get them out. The fuel lines run up the back side of engine so removing the cross member will allow more room to gain access to the retaining hardware. jack up transmission and transfer case remove cross member lower down for access.

I just rebuilt the transmission in my 1999 Dodge Durango. Getting the trans mount cross member out was a chore but now it seem that the cross member is about 1.5 " longer than it was when I took it out. ...


The frame rails move in when you remove the crossmember. I put a port a power between the frame rails to remove and install the crossmembers on dodge trucks.

Does the transmission cross member have to be took off to get the transmission pan off to change screen?


I doubt it. Have a look: If you can see all of the bolts on the pan, and there is nothing in the way of its edges for removal, then you're good to go (clean the pan, its bolts, and the area of the gasket well before taking things apart. Transmissions do not like dirt!).

If something is in the way (including the cross member) then whatever that is will have to be moved.

Knocking coming from under the extended cab from


There called torsion bar mount bushings, and will cost about $34.00 for both of them. Parts Source.

Jack up RH side of truck, crawl under LH side
  • 1 Remove nut from torsion bar mount stud that secures the mount to the cross-member. You'll have to feel for it, you won't be able to see it from below.
  • 2 Remove bottom two bolts. Easy, they're in plain view from below. Now the mount is free.
  • 3 Push up on cross member, remove old mount.
  • 4 Insert new mount - push up on cross member, slip mount in between frame and cross member. Drop hole in cross member over the stud.
  • 5 Loose assemble nut and two bolts. Torque down once other side is done.
Now over to the passenger side
  • 6 Jack up driver side of truck
  • 7 Repeat steps 1 and 2
  • 8 To get the mount out, try pushing up on the cross member, just like the driver side. If it comes out, great. I couldn't get the cross member up high enough on mine. I used a big screwdriver and ripped it out by separating the rubber from the metal plate. It came out in pieces.
  • 9 Install new mount. If you didn't have trouble getting the old one out, you probably won't have a problem getting the new one in. As I said, I did. I couldn't raise the cross member high enough to slip it in. Solution: whack 3/8" off the stud. You'll still have plenty left for the nut.
  • 10 Reinstall nut & bolts, torque down.
  • 11 Remove jack, Torque down drives side.
Good luck. The TRW's are one-piece urethane, (I think) and came with a lifetime guarantee. They'll probably outlast the vehicle.

Is a vitara transfer box easy to change


As the gearbox and transfer box are one unit, if you only need to remove the transfer box, you can remove the rear cross member and support the gearbox part while you undo the bolts that join the two boxes together. The biggest problem as I recall is gaining access to the bolts underneath the gearbox selector housing - if it's a manual of course. I think you will have to remove the gearbox selector housing to enable this. Be also careful of wiring for different switches and the like. I would say "no, it's not an easy job".

Any tricks for removal of oil pan in a 4.0 litre


There is most likely a cross member in the way of the pan dropping down. Remove the cross member, 4 bolts, and the pan should drop once you have removed all the screws. You will need a seal cutter or a putty knife of some type to break the seal lose as Nissan uses a liquid gasket sealer when the engine is assembled.

remove the carpet on the floor, remove the gear shift lever as well as the 4wd shift lever, remove the drive shaft (both) remove the bell housing bolts, remove the starter, place a hydraulic lift jack below the gear box , then remove the wiring connectors , then remove the cross member , then pull the gearbox out from its positin, drop the gearbox very carefully, when gearbox is on the floor, make sure its sittin on a up right position so it dose not spoil any of the elctric connectors especially the reverse light switch...(that seems to be the easiest way to remove a manual land cruiser gearbox) hope that wil help....
