What procedure to remove 2.00 litre diesel turbo engine from

This answer was rated:

What procedure to remove 2.00 litre diesel turbo engine from Kia Carens 2007 model . Do we need to first remove radiator and intercooler to make more room ?

you should be able to drop the engine out without removing the cooling / radiator pack

The easiest method is to drop the entire front subframe with the engine, box and front suspension all still attached as one unit.

Undo the strut top mounts to release them from the body

you'll need to remove the exhaust, undo the gear linkage, fuel pipes, throttle cable, water hoses, engine electrics and engine intake pipework

Remove all the big subframe bolts securing it to the body and then lower the whole assembly down, This is possible at home if you've a crane or a couple of large trolley jacks but its far easier on 2 post lift
