21.
Remove the stabilizer bar links (A).
(Refer to SS group)

22.
Remove the tie rod ends (A). (Refer to ST group)

23.
Disconnect the drive shafts from the axle hubs.
(Refer to DS group)
24.
Remove the roll rod bracket (A).

Tightening torque:
Nut (B) : 88.3 ~ 107.9 N.m (9.0 ~ 11.0 kgf.m, 65.1 ~ 79.6 lb-ft)
Bolt (C) : 49.0 ~ 63.7 N.m (5.0 ~ 6.5 kgf.m, 36.2 ~ 47.0 lb-ft)

25.
Support the sub frame (A) with a floor jack, and then remove the sub frame mounting bolts and nuts.

Tightening torque:
Sub frame mounting bolts & nuts :
156.9 ~ 176.5 N.m (16.0 ~ 18.0 kgf.m, 115.7 ~ 130.2 lb-ft)
Stay mounting bolts :
44.1 ~ 58.8 N.m (4.5 ~ 6.0 kgf.m, 32.5 ~ 43.4 lb-ft)

Х
After removing the sub frame mounting bolt, the engine and transaxle assembly may fall downward, and so support them securely with floor jack.
Х
Verify that the hoses and connectors are disconnected before removing the engine and transaxle assembly.
26.
Disconnect the ground line (A), and then remove the engine mounting bracket (B).

27.
Disconnect the ground line (A), and then remove the transaxle mounting support bracket (B).

Tightening torque:
88.3 ~ 107.9 N.m (9.0 ~ 11.0 kgf.m, 65.1 ~ 79.6 lb-ft)

28.
Remove the engine and transaxle assembly by lifting vehicle.

When remove the engine and transaxle assembly, be careful not to damage any surrounding parts or body components.

Installation

Installation is in the reverse order of removal.
Perform the following :
Х
Adjust a shift cable.
Х
Refill engine with engine oil.
Х
Refill a transaxle with fluid.
Х
Refill a radiator and a reservoir tank with engine coolant.
Х
Clean battery posts and cable terminals and assemble.
Х
Inspect for fuel leakage.
-
After assemble the fuel line, turn on the ignition switch (do not operate the starter) so that the fuel pump runs for approximately two seconds and fuel line pressurizes.
-
Repeat this operation two or three times, then check for fuel leakage at any point in the fuel line.
Х
Bleed air from the cooling system.
-
Start engine and let it run until it warms up. (until the radiator fan operates 3 or 4 times.)
-
Turn Off the engine. Check the level in the radiator, add coolant if needed. This will allow trapped air to be removed from the cooling system.
-
Put radiator cap on tightly, then run the engine again and check for leaks.
