Quick question for those in the know. What is the easiest way to remove a speed sensor and gear from a BTR in an EF 4.0l.

Car is in the drive with no access to a hoist, doesn't run, just parts car. Need to remove sensor for a mate.

Will help me also as I need to change my speedo geank ar to a 3:45 from a 3:23 as well but I can get access to a hoist for that unless there is an easy way.

Thanks guys. All advice as well as sarcasm welcomed. :lol:

How the bloody hell do you get your hands up there. Do you drop the rear Gearbox mount and let the rear hang a bit?

I suppose you can, but I've never had to.
You could ask the big fella to get you a spare speed sensor for the meantime . . .

Big Fella also had to drop the rear cross member for access.

And that 8mm bolt is really long too LOL
