Pulling the engine out of XE

Mum said I should start a new thread. I am going to pull out the engine of the XE and start to rebuild it as the other altenator is not working.

I have the never ending chain here now and I think the right tools to start. Is there any bolts that are tricky or that are hiding ?

Is there anything that I should know before I start?

Thank you

Re: Pulling the engine out of XE

a good suggestion would be to mark every wire where it came from, place bolts ect... in containers and mark the containers where they came from. apart from that just have a basic tool kit, a pretty straight forward job. and another suggestion get yourself a workshop manual so you can see the steps in how to do it.

Re: Pulling the engine out of XE

Re: Pulling the engine out of XE

are u gonna remove the motor and box, or just the motor?....

to me the motor/box together is EASIER as you dont need to do the flexplate0- torque converter bolts, and the bellhousing bolts.....

start by taking radiator off,
start at one side of the motor, and take all thingts that are connected to the engine bay and other stuff off, mark them and try remember how they go
take off the engine pipe bolts, they may be hard, ill suggest you spray with rp7 a few times, and let it soak for about 10 mins
engine mount bolts are easy (they may not come out when you undothem, but as u lift the motor a litlte to get the weight off them, they should slide out)
under the car, take the earth strap off the gearbox, the shifter off the tranny, the handbrake cable, tailshaft, transmission mount bolts
unplug ythe wiring harnesses
acceleratoir cable, blah blah blah

lift the motor out and there you go (i may have missed somethings)

Re: Pulling the engine out of XE

I was going to get the car going so I could still have a bit of fun it it but now I have decided to start the big job already.

Thanks for the advise. I have started undoing everything but I had to work today so this is a bit behind now.

Re: Pulling the engine out of XE

Thanks for the help guys. This is a project of the boys that Im hoping will be a learning curve for him, hence no help from me .... not that I know much

He will be pulling the engine out over the next week while Im away, he has conned a mate to help him out, but I must add he has done all the ground work himself .... I am a proud mother :)

Re: Pulling the engine out of XE

just make sure that he lifts the engine properly with a jack, and its SAFE! and when working under the car not to rely on a jack, and to use STANDS

Re: Pulling the engine out of XE

One of the things he got in the beginning was the car stands ..... hes been around often enough with us redoing engines to know what he needs.

My kids are taught saftey first with everything ....... the mate whos helping him is an adult as well, otherwise it would have been a wait till I got back type job.

Thanks for your concern with saftey. Its refreshing to see others have the same thoughts as me in this regard

Re: Pulling the engine out of XE

Before you start, get a whole heap of Ice Crem / Coffee containers to put nuts and bolts in. Label them all up for various parts (Engine Mounts, Alternator, Manfolds etc). Will make it much easier when it comes time to put it all back toghether.

Workshop manual will also be valuable.

Good luck mate.
