08 Boxster Trans removal

Recommended Posts

Hi All, So I started pulling parts off to remove my 5 speed man.tranny and I'm trying to avoid taking the mufflers off.....not too sure if its necessary. The bolts are up and behind the pre cats and are rusted and rounded and not easily accessible. So...I removed the muffler bracket from the back of the trans and from the mufflers. Gives me about 5 inches to pull the trans back and drop it. It will also clear the crossmember that sits right below the trans. I can give myself way more room if I remove the c clamps and remove the muffler tip but not sure if thats entirely necessary either. Thoughts?? Thanks V

I've never even tried to pull the trans without removing the exhaust system, so I have no idea if you will have enough clearance to get it out.  We normally remove the rear bumper cover, rear crash bar, and the entire exhaust system up to the triangular flange.
