Does anyone have a link to a site with a detailed transmission removal guide? I have a shop manual and I've gotten some tips from a local CRX owner, but I was hoping someone would know of a write-up that included pictures. Thanks!

First off, do you have a hoist? or at leat some jacks with a really high reach? You will have to remove the transmission out the bottom of the vehicle...that's why I ask. It's a major PITA job. I've done it a few times...and I can tell you that taking it apart is the easy job... but putting the tranny back on and trying to align the splines and get it to go in (while you are completely by yourself) is a nasty, nasty task (unless you're really lucky, and they line up right away.)

Well I don't have a hoist, and doing it from underneath the car is my only option unfortunatley. I know it'll be tough, but I'm not too worried about it, I'll have a friend or two helping me out.

Then it shouldn't be too bad. First things you should remove are the passenger side wheel and axle. You will also have to remove the passenger side radius rod because it will be in the way.

I also remember having to remove the battery, battery tray, air intake hose, and starter motor. Once those are off, you will need to disconnect the reverse light switch, and remove the speedo cable from the back of the tranny.

dont forget to take out the speedo cable. if its a stock engine you will also have to remove the front engine mount. I use an extra jack with block of wood to support the engine before i take the mounts out.
