    Removing fuel lines, f23 cables and others....

    As title, started to dismantle the engine bay today ready for next weekend and lifting the engine/box out

    still gotta remove sahfts, fuel lines and transmission cables etc

    just wondering whats the best way to do this, any tips for removing the fuel lines etc....any need to depressurise the system in any way?

    just the 2 lines which i assume are feed and return, at both ends of the fuel rail.....

    as for the f23 cables, do these simply unclip or do i have to make some form of alignment marks so when refitting they go back in the same place? i know when fitting a traditional linkage u can mis align the gears etc so wondering if this is still the case here?


    basically any help u can give or pointers to make things run smoothly let me know

    heres how the car looks at present - feeling rather sorry for itself



    Im certainly getting there, its just a little daunting doing such drastic work yourself! Next weekend should involve a hoist and engine stand so thats when the real fun begins

    what about lining the cables up when i refit? is that simple or a bit of an arse on (i mean for first timers )

    so there wont be any major fuel spillage then? im guessing just a small amount like changing fuel filters etc

    i'll be taking the cables off from the box end as i need to fit a short shift whist im there - engine will be coming out the top therefore would rather the cables stay attached to the lever
