How to remove top transmission bolts on a 2002 ford explorer

You will need two "special" tools. First a long (36" or so) extension, preferably 1/2" drive, and a swivel impact socket. All of the bolts around the bell housing are the same head size. I believe a 13mm. The way it is done is that you remove the transmission mount and let the trans hang down to give you more room, then use the long extension and swivel socket to reach the top 2 bolts.

How To Remove A Manual Transmission From A 1986-92 VW Jetta/Golf

Disconnect and remove the battery. Remove the axleshaft nuts on the spindle and remove the 6 splined bolts holding the axleshaft to the transmission yoke. Jack the car up 1-2 feet. You'll need to support the motor with a jack or jack stand. Drain the transmission, there is a 17mm allen plug at the bottom of the housing. The filler plug is on the right end of the transmission, (17mm allen plug also) to the right of the throw out bearing housing plug, that says VW on it. Remove the axleshafts. Unplug the back up switch. Remove the starter, that will also disconnect the motor/transmission mount. Disconnect the clutch cable and shifter linkage attached to the transmission. Remove the speedometer cable. Unbolt the rear transmission mount (17mm bolt going vertically down, a real long extension will help to get to that one) and bracket going to the end of the transmission at the top, 2, 17mm bolts with nuts. Remove the bracket. Remove the lower inspection sheild, 3, 11mm bolts. From the underneath side, on the other side of the motor where the transmission joins the motor, there is a 19mm bolt holding the transmission to the block, remove that, and also remove the small inspection plate above there, 2, 10mm bolts. Unbolt the two top bellhousing bolts, and it's ready to remove, pull the transmission away from the motor 2-4 inches to clear the input shaft from the clutch disc, you'll have to kind of turn and twist the transmission to get the transmission to clear the sub frame. Also moving the engine up or down will also help. The transmission weighs about 70 pounds.

How to remove bolts out of 2003 for removal of transmission

If you are talking about the two bolts on top of the bell housing. You will need a three foot extension with a swivel and 15 mm socket. To access the top bolts you need to put your jack with a piece of wood under the transmission pan, jack it up just enough so you can remove the rear cross member then slowly lower your jack supporting the trans. Until you see those top bolts approx. Three inches assuming you have removed all the other bolts on bell housing and the three bolts that attach the flywheel to the pumpkin.

How do you sheck the transmition fluid

02/'03 L200/L300's don't have transmission dipsticks most likely reflecting Saturn's confidence of a leak-free transmission, leaving only a red fill cap on the transmission. The actual method for checking transmission level is a very abnormal method; parking on a level surface, removing the transmission oil level bolt/cap from the transmission, observing whether or not fluid flows out. Excess fluid will flow out automatically establishing the proper level and amount of transmission fluid. Less would mean topping off by pouring some into the top access fill hole and observing if fluid flows out the leveled drain hole until fluid flows out. This would indicate proper levels and replacing the top and access plug is all that's necessary. Messy as compared to the old method. The access bolt will be sized differently from the other bolts holding the transmission sump on. I would assume your '01 L200 is the same. Use regular Dexron ATF red transmission fluid.

Gear shift will not come off of transmission

You should be able to take the trim screws around the shifter boot off and raise the boot. There are a few bolts on top of the tranny to remove and the shifter will come off. That is the only way to remove the shifter, it bolts into the top to make sure you can't just **** up on the shifter and pop it out of the shift forks.

1990 Nissan Maxima transmission top vacumn line

I believe the line you are talking about is a vent line not a vacuum line. It should go tp a metal tube that is in a "U" shape. This bolts to one of the bolts on the transmission.
