<strong>It's easy enough to do - I did it in a couple of evenings.
The drive shaft bearing is one long nut & bolt, its not too fiddly.
You need to drop the exhaust and undo the first bracket near the bulkhead.
The hardest bit is undoing the bolts near the bellhousing end of the sump. (which are all RIBE fyi, but Allen's work quite well)
When all 10 (? i think) bolts are out, the sump will drop down with a bit of leverage to break the old sealant. You then need to remove the oil pickup, which is held by 2 bolts, near the pulley end.
It's easy, dont be so lazy wink </strong><hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">I think AJ you will fine there are 14 bolts in the sump and 4 in the manifold and 4 in the exhust brackect. So thats a total of 22 bolts. As for the one near the bell housing, i went to halfords and thay sold a Vlong star/RIBE type tool, this was £4.95 and i got a pack of allens for £14.99. Job done.
