Hello folks,

As the title asks, is there enough clearance to remove the sump from the diesel with the engine still fitted to the vehicle?

Regards,

Smiler.

According to RAVE, it's the same as on a V8. With the suspension on high, jack the body up on the crossmember that runs under the radiator so the gap between the sump and top of the front axle opens up enough to get it out. Apparently, you've got 29 bolts holding it on to the underside of the block. I though taking the 16 or so on the V8 out was tedious.......

Ok, cheers. I want to drop it to give it and the bottom of the engine good clean as the oil is really manky and I'm looking to keep this vehicle long term. As I'll be under there dropping the gearbox sump anyway so I may as well do both.
