I am in the last phase of engine removal from my 99 V70 T5 following Haynes Service and Repair Manual and I am not sure how to connect my cherry picker (hoist) to the engine. The manual says to attach suitable lifting gear to the engine by fabricating brackets and bolting them to the either end of the engine. This is very vague.<br>Anybody with the VADIS manual to shed some light on where and what to attach?<br>I have a standard powerbuilt engine hoist with balancer and 4 chains with L brackets.

Re: engine removal - 99 V70 T5 - how to hook it up (pzi123)

OK - with the help from my alldatadiy.com I found that the special beam connected to the engine head is needed. It is called yokes part number 999 2810.<br>Any alternatives - this must be quite expensive.<br>

Try dropping it through the bottom. Drop the subframe & save yourself the headaches of scratching anything. You can just unbolt it take it apart, reassemble it & bolt it back up.

Re: engine removal - 99 V70 T5 - how to hook it up (FlntRoc)

Very good idea! I have my car on the two post lift now with no wheels on it so I can drop the car or the subframe on the cart, undo the subframe and lift the car of off the the subframe with engine on it.<br>Now I need to study a bit on where are the subframe bolts and if I can undo them safely from above the car - I don't want to do it be below it <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Greetings to Bay Area - got my V70 from Volvo of Pleasanton....<br>cheers<br>

Re: engine removal - 99 V70 T5 - how to hook it up (peterjmag)

No I come from Poland - the Bay Area (Danville) where I spent last 8+ years became too expensive after 911...<p>Coming back to the V70 engine removal I checked the idea of dropping the engine from below but hit two show stoppers:<p>1. To undo the sub frame from on the rear side of the engine you have to have full access to this triangle pieces of heavy steel plates to which sub frame is attached. Unfortunately these plates are used to support car stands (per manual) or in my case two post jack arms. There is not way that I can touch it.<p>2. The complication is also with the steering bar and sway bar that is sandwiched between engine mount and the sub frame. You have to undo the bolts supporting the steering to the sub frame and deal with all the loose components while the engine is lowered.<p><br>I solved the problem by bolting two pieces of heavy 3/16" thick 1.5/1.5" angle profiles to front right (used bolts from panel what supports alternator/power st. pump and drive belt tensioner) and back right of the engine (exhaust collector shield bolts) and using already present steel hook on the left side of the engine by the top engine mount. Three chains connected to engine leveler and hoist set to .5 ton capacity. The leveler was really useful to angle the engine with the transmission downward to avoid the break line manifold on the left rear of the engine bay. I pulled the engine to the right and it cleared the right quarter panel with 6" clearance. What a relief! Nothing scratched.<br>
