QR20 Engine Removal


Just registered on here, hoping for some help!

Basically my 2.0 petrol engine has gone up the spout, buring oil on cylinders 1 & 4. See here for the complete story:

UK Nissan X-Trail Owners Forum • View topic - List of T30 2.0 questions! - Update: Engine strip photos

Now, I'm going to have to replace the engine with an exchange unit. My question is about whether or not it is possible to remove the engine from out the top of the engine bay. I have slingers attached and have managed about one inch of seperation from the gearbox bellhousing, but can move it no further. Has anyone even managed to seperate the engine and gearbox in the car so the engine alone can be removed?

Thanks folks, I'm rather stuck at the moment so any advice would be gratefully received!

Thanks in advance,

Roy K.
