E60: Engine Swap Week - Day 3

  • Drop prop-shaft.
  • Remove slave-cyl. / gearshift linkages.
  • Drop gearbox.
  • Lift engine out.
  • Remove parts for new engine.
Once the prop was down it didn't take long at all to get the engine out. The gearbox is huge, but surprisingly light.

Prep for new engine:
  • Remove clutch.
  • Remove flywheel.
Got the clutch off easy enough, but need a T55 Torx socket to remove the flywheel so that will have to wait until I get it from work tomorrow.

NOTE: Missing bolt from exhaust cross-member.
