6-Speed Transmission Install Help

First of all I wanna say hi to all you 4G owners, I became a proud owner last year and instantly fell in love with mine. I had to replace the clutch, flywheel and throw out bearing recently, but when I jacked the trawnsmission back up into the engine cavity it didn't go so smoothly, I had to turn it one way to get it over the sub-frame but the U-Shaped top that goes between the thermostat housing got caught, and when I tried the other way it wouldn't go over the sub-frame.. so my question is, to everyone that's had to remove there tranny's and reinstall them, do you have to take the sub-frame out to get it back in? Or is there a special trick for getting into place? I'm so confused it was so easy to get out

Major props to you for doing your own install... I don't trust myself enough to do that. That said, I have absolutely no idea, and most of our active members drive auto like the schmucks they are Welcome to the club regardless, Cody! Hopefully someone can help.

It's all good now I did had to take the sub-frame out with all the scary steering parts, but got the tranny back in place with slightly more ease! (Our cars can be a real b#$ch to work on lol) thanks for the support even though you guys didn't know either ?.

skysky has a spectacular aura about
Wish I would have seen this earlier. I did the LSD and clutch install on my car. I DID NOT have to remove the subframe. Granted it was a bitch to do in a tight garage on lifts (never doing transmission stuff again without access to a lift), but i contorted it back into place. With the transmission out, the engine should hang in the engine bay by the engine mount on the passenger strut and by a cherry picker/hanger holding the block hooks. My clearance issue was the transmission not having room to slide up in front of and back above the subframe center without binding on the flywheel side of the engine and subframe. I had to angle the flywheel side of the engine down I think and rock the engine forward significantly. Partially attach the transmission and jack them up in place together. Then I was able to get the transmission back up over the subframe. That 4" you save when you slip the bellhousing over the clutch/FW is a precious 4" for getting the pieces back in.

I'm pretty sure I had to do the same to get it out also, like 95% sure, as when I slipped the transmission OFF and OUTWARD from the clutch/FW I no longer had room to drop it out of the subframe. It took patience and some large scale tetris but the transmission does go in and out, you just have to move the engine around first to make space.

***Important Note: Don't squish the pulleys on the passenger side of the engine when your pivot it on the mount***

Oh darn lol I just angled the engine down ward to better fit the tranny back perfectly center, my patience may have run thin but now I'm paying for it, hooking the steering back into place and center was a whole other beast of a challenge, but finally everything is back together now waiting for the 75w 80 gl-3 gear oil to arrive, no parts store seems to carry that in my area but I'm willing to wait a few days to drive my baby again,. Also I wish I had that post sooner lol but definitely good to know I don't have to remove the sub-frame if I ever have to do this again, Thank you sir!

fhadso will become famous soon enough
GL-4 meets the same requirements as GL-3, and is more widely available. In fact, the six speed requires GL-5 if I remember correctly.

If you dropped the subframe, if you haven't already, make sure you get an alignment done on your car.

as for getting the trans back in i find it easier if you use something (a 1" ratchet strap works well) to pull and hold the engine forward helps with the clearance issues. I have replaced my clutch using a jack and jack stands and I have done it on a lift.either way pulling the engine forward helps.
