Hi Michael,

You'll have


Hi Michael,

You'll have to disconnect the shift rod at the coupler, good idea to replace the shift shaft bushing while it's out, they get soft & go bad due to the oil leaking onto them, then slide the rod forward till it comes out. I don't jack anything up, unless you mean the whole car.

Hi JRV
eventually i had to li


Hi JRV
eventually i had to lift the engine 20 mm to get the rod out of the case (after loosening the frontal engine mounts)because it collided with the long rod from the gear shift lever.
there is another question: is it original that the transmission cover is silver painted?
starting the engine after 10 days in the garage there is a screeching for some seconds. somebody told me thats from the timing belts.do you have similar experiences?
regards michael

Hi Micheal,

no it's not


Hi Micheal,

no it's not the timing belts...so relax...{
}...but it very likely is a sign your water pump bearings have seen better days.

To test the WP bearings to see if in fact that is the noise, pull the WP belt and spin by hand, if you feel any resistance or feel any up & down play the bearings are on their way out in the future. There is one other possibility, if the WP or Alternator belt is even somewhat loose they squeal when cold. It's late..after a long day...check the belts tension first...then the wp bearings.

Regards, JRV
