pics wont be do able till late next week......im away this weekend and just been doing an engine change on the lads car.......to be honest they wouldnt be a huge amount of help
you dont need nothing special.....i listed as much as i could size wise, id avise you get undertray off asap and see if u can shift the 3 nuts with a 6 sided 12mm socket and some heat, if not you need some gripper sockets as it as to be undone.....if u can get the hub carrier and hub nut undone thats the next hurdle than can stop you, do u have a thin wall 36mm socket as normal ones wont do, and a 7mm allen key for the caliper. there are some shallow bolts on the underside of gearbox use ring end of a spanner on these not a socket as a socket will slip four hours to get to unbolting the box was how long that took, keep the engine jacked up high to get the drive shaft cup over bottom wishbone and with some wiggling aim the box to front of car and through gap in inner wing.....3 men are needed to get it back in, yes its a fiddle but its totally doable
the guide is as i did it, no real short cuts, take off all the bits and take your time...its a big job.
ooh u need torx allen keys, i have a set i got that fit a special little ratchet and they do come in handy
