Even the techs at Toyota dealerships usually drop it out the bottom.

I think what makes the biggest difference is whether we have a lift to work on or not. Hands down easier to go bottom and yes most front drives we drop out the bottom these days ... way to compact :crazy:

I'm pulling the engine/trans from my ST185 to install a new clutch + timing belt/pumps/seals. Step 24 in the BGB says to disconnect the "Noise Filter Connector" What is it and where is it located?

What's the surrounding context? Removing the intake?

Also sounds electrical.

it is the in the same step as the main wiring harness being removed from the firewall.

***edit: I think. I figured it out. The engine room wiring harness is actually the end of the harness with the afm clip and diagnostic port on it. It also clips onto a little silver box that I believe is the noise filter. The ecu wire harness comes out a few steps later - thanks for the help guys

Damn where was this topic when I was pulling off my tranny! I had to lift my car which was hard cause I was using a 2ton jack with no hoist at one point. I dropped my engine through the bottom of the car which was easy but as soon as it came down to removing the tranny and installing, now that was the hard part! " if I had a swear jar it would be filled on that day" this was the first time I've ever removed and install a engine/tranny which was a great experience to learn my way around these cars.

I have pulled the engine out of my gt-four 2 times now.I pulled my engine out through the top both times with no trouble at all,the key to doing it is having an engine leveler and of course the engine hoist.Figured id post a couple pictures of the last engine removal.Notice the angle you got to have the engine on in order to remove it.I've never tried dropping the motor down through the bottom so I can't say what way is easier, but I can say this way went very smooth and I will continue doing it this way...Hopefully not for awhile anyway hahah.Lets face it either way is probably a pain an the ass, just one of the many joys of working on these cars 8)

Random bump if people want to add anymore info. I will be taking this on soon and will contribute if anything I come across is missed here.

So, on a ST165 do you need to disconnect the hubs/struts to remove the cv axles or is it possible to remove the axles without disconnecting the hub area?
