ENGINE ASSEMBLY REMOVAL

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

Note

for Manual Transaxle:

When the transaxle is removed, be sure to use a new clutch release with bearing cylinder and new installation bolts. Removal of the transaxle allows the compressed clutch release with bearing cylinder to return to its original position, and dust could damage the seal of the clutch release with bearing cylinder, possibly causing clutch fluid leaks.
