Asked by scottyd1 Apr 03, 2010 at 07:33 PM about the 2001 Volkswagen Passat GLS V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Do I remove the engine out the bottom?  It looks easier and I have a lift & forklift & engine lift.  Chiltons says out the top but what a tight fit and I need to change both engine and trans.

thanks,
Scott

I've seen it done both ways...a bit more suspension work if you drop from the bottom...but feasible.
