it made it easy as its a proper struggle to get it in and out, its gotta go down, and there wasnt enough room in the wheel arch area to move it very far sideways, so i controled the hoist as my mate wiggled and jostled the box, the shaft is very long so its hard to clear it. we also needed to removed the gear selector from box as it was getting caught on everything......if u do that remember to put a nice clean rag in the hole.
if u cant borrow a hoist a mate of two and some rope or webbing straps should be fine.
in the guide i found, it never mentioned how hard to actual box would be to remove so am not sure if it is on all cars?
does your dmf make noise? alfa specialist advised me they rattle, and when u can get ur hands on it u will know for sure if u need one, hope u dont as its a big extra to pay for.
