      for anyone that needs this info, i went and did a online translation of it to print off. they are numbered with the pictures. i left the first 2 out, cause if you can figure those out, your already way over your head!

      7. Here is another picture of where växellådsbultarna sit.
      From this page it may be easier to hand chasing out the bolts.
      8.Here you dismantle the bolts in the bottom of the box.
      9.When the engine and the box is separated, and the starter motor removed picked, you can access
      turbine screws. 14 mm. Remove these. 4 pcs.
      10.Use a 19 mm socket on the crankshaft to rotate the engine.
      11.We recommend that you use a small air turbine engine when the screws should
      dismantled. It makes the job go faster.

      19. Release the computer connection, 10 mm
      20 Release the earth cable, 11 mm.
      21 Release the data cable from the engine, do not forget the vacuum hoses on both the right and
      left side of the engine.

      23 Release both kylrören to the automatic gearbox. 16 mm.
      24 Release the plastic casing around the condenser.
      25 Plastic casing and the fan losskruvade dismantled simultaneously.
      26. Let cooler, 2 screws. Release also kylrören during the cooler, these are fastclipsade.
      Let also the upper and lower radiator hose and let the last glycols drain.
      27 Release both cooled hoses leading to the heat package.
      28. Remove the condenser. How will it look.
      29. Unscrew remskivan to the servo pump.
      30. Remove the servo pump.
      31. Remove the reservoir to the servos.
      32. Remove also the small holder to servo hose.
      33. Remove the nuts to the servo pump.
      34. Put the servo reservoir.
      35. Unscrew the steering rods to the AC compressor. 5 mm.
      36. Do not forget the vacuum hose when the ac-compressor release time. Do not forget to
      re-mount it when the engine comes in. Easy happened!
      37. Release the fuel connection. Use spring lock tool.
      1999-2000 has a hose. 1997-1998 has two hoses.
      38. This is how it looks when the ac-compressor has released a time.
      39. Remove the engine mount. 4 bolts.
      40. Remove the bracket to the oil stick to the machine.
      41. Remove the bracket to the AC pipe.
      42. Remove the bracket to automatkylrören.
      43. Remove the 2 data connectors and 2 lambda contacts on the right and left
      side of the engine (on the back).
      44. Now the engine let go.
      45. When you come out a little engine you can release the bolt attached to the cable strain. Sitting on
      left engine mount. 10mm, taken from below.
      46.Now you can remove the mount to ac-compressor 15mm.
      47. Release the power cable to the alternator, pull out the power cable and take off cable
      oil pressure sensor. Now is the sentence to make it possible to get it out of the engine. Good luck.

      the växellådsbultarna must have some deep bolts if you need a meter and a half extension... oh how those växellådsbultarna's can be pesky. lol
