The old transmission needs to come out. The reverse has came out and I can't back up.

    It depends on what you consider hard. The engine has to be supported, part or all of the front sub-frame must be removed, only then will the transmission come out from the bottom.

    He can find great repair manuals with step-by-step instructions, diagrams, parts locations and other important information here: http://www.eautorepair.net/Marketing/Default.asp?VID=125669
    It will be a great help for him to do the job if he has all the tools.

    Lucky him, mine falls out before it could turn grey, lol.
    He might need some extra hands when removing and re-installing the tranny.
    Good luck with the project!
