Hi all I'm in the middle of replacing my gearbox but I've come to my first hurdle. I need to remove the old metal oil lines that run from my radiator to the gearbox. I have disconnected everything and unbolted it all but I just cant figure out how the hell I can get the old line out.

Im not sure if many people would have done this but is there something I'm missing?
As I'm writing this I'm actually thinking it might be easier to drop the gearbox out before I do it....hmmmm

If you have an answer please reply but I'll try dropping the box first lol

End of ramble.

Cheers, Nathan

hi there, i've just had done a new motor in my NL and was there the whole time, what i noticed was that the tranny lines are bolted down with some kind of metal clipand a bolt, its about where the a/c compresser sits,

yeah u might have to sip them off either side of the radiator cause its a pain in the a** to get them out normally. id say if u dont want to do that unbolt the radiator and drop it down and then it might be able to be slid out.

just a suggestion
