Hi All,
I'm removing a damaged K4J this weekend and replacing with a brand new engine from Renault Spares.
My plan is to remove the Engine,Gearbox and subframe leaving the driveshafts on and swapping the engine - driveplate and flywheel, then putting it all back in.
I've built a wooden frame for supporting the subframe with two trolley jacks so that part should be straightforward.

Is there anythying I should watch out for or problems anyone has hit whilst doign this?

I'm planning to take my time over 4 days to make sure I don't mess anything up.

Any tips or hints are welcome.

I'm sure i'll be updating this thread with pics along the way.

Thanks everyone

Are you taking the bonnet off?

I'd also place some old duvets around the wings to protect the panels.

Good suggestion - should have done that when I was takign the head off.

Wasn't planning on taking the bonnet off, not had any access problems so far.

Thanks,
