I've never had an issue with sticking a wrench up between the subframe and removing the bolts.

Youve done this on a syncro? Ill try again tomorrow. Any more tips? We're  accessing it from the bay should we be doing it from beneath? Does the exhaust need to come out

Yes, 3 times.


If you go under the car, you can just get a wrench in between the subframe and angle drive to remove the guibo bolts. You'll then have to pry the driveshaft rearwards as there is a centering hub that usually get corroded into the angle drive.

I find it makes it so much easier to remove the trans. Remove the 4 bolts and support bracket. You're gonna lose fluid so get a pan ready.
