Hi I was wondering if anybody has any experience pulling the engine out of an 05 Mdx? I’m planning on seperating the engine from the transmission while it’s still in the vehicle, and lifting the engine out through the top. It looks like there should be plenty of room to do so, but every bit of info I’ve found on the procedure, states to drop the whole cradle. Thanks In advance.

Its going to be a PITA to remove the engine from the top... Way easier to drop the cradle.

1. I doubt that there is enough in-car clearance to pull the engine apart from the transmission.

2. The rear motor mount is VERY difficult to access with the motor in the vehicle.

3. I did my 2005 X by lowering the whole assembly, but I had a lift.
