Hi folks

Trying to pull the engine out of my R32 and want to know where is the best place to connect an engine hoist leveller. I can see a place at the front of the block with 2 holes drivers side, but the rear looks inaccessible. One final question, how high does the car need to be to get the engine and gearbox out together without catching the aircon rad?

Thanks

Both points you have located are correct, you will need a set of engine eyes and bolts to attach into those holes for your hoist chain to attach to.

Thanks

I have ordered a piece of 6mm thick mild steel bar (50mm x 150mm) to try and bolt on the rear of the engine.

Are there any other options? I have seen in a few posts that putting some rope around the rear turbo has worked, however I am worried this maybe a stress point when lifting both gearbox and engine together.
