    Today I have finished of dismantling the old pipes to get back to the original ones which solved my steering problem.
    Still four left pipes to mount and the job will be done, just flush of liquid.

    Yes I am able to change gear while the engine is off, but you can hear a little crack sometimes
    When the engine s running, I can pass the 1rd but when I try to realease the clutch pedal, then the car is not moving and the 1rd stay on while nothing happen
    While I'm sure the RPMs during your shift didn't cause your gearbox issue, on average, I find that 3,000 to 3,500 RPMs is the ideal range for shifting. Any lower or higher than that causes rough clunky shifting, at least for me.

    Nice!
    VIN 4728 is on standby to have its new exhaust installed, and has lost priority to a kitchen/living room renovation & 60-80 hour work weeks.

    All pipes are now back in the car, just need to put some water in the tank and it will be fine
    Next step, the gear boxÖ

    If I see correctly, there is only 4 rear bolt to remove?
    Apparently, 2 more for the starter?

    And for the bracket, screw number 1 or number 2?

    And of course the manual shifting

    You will need to remove the linkage brackets to clear the water pipes. Yes 4 bolts on the transmission to engine, 3 starter bolts and if you have the plate covers those come off (mine had no covers). You also need to move the brake cable out of the way (pull the end off the passenger side wheel). Of course you pull the line off the slave or remove the slave and tie it out of the way.
