Hello all,


I am needing some input on my current situation


I apologize in advance if this isn't the right place to post this.



I have 97 Tiptronic 2.5 Base model

In Canada




I have the transmission out of my 97 base Boxster. Car is on jack stands. The engine is being supported by a jack stand. I have the wheels off, and the CV axles are being held up with a piece of wire.

I took the transmission out (blown front seal) so I can install a "new" transmission.



Now, the option of putting my car on a lift has been presented...problem is my car is already half gutted, sitting on jack stands, at a separate location (from the lift).



 I want to transport my car to put on the lift. 

Question: do I have to fully reinstall the transmission before I put the wheels back on and transport it via flatbed towtruck?




What is the least amount of reinstalling the old transmission that I would have to achieve before transporting?


Pls be kind 🙂


much appreciative to any input!
