Re: xf auto to manual

if you get all the parts its easy

gear box
bell housing
flywheel
clutch
clutch cable
pedal box

the hardest part of the job i found is swaping pedal box.

Re: xf auto to manual

i found it very easy. probably cause i didnt do it. cost me $600 for full conversion (4 speed), including everything. Cheers
