Manual Transaxle Assembly


See Figures 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7

1.Properly disable the SIR system, if equipped, and disconnect the negative, then positive battery cables.
2.Remove the air inlet duct fasteners, detach the air temperature sensor connector and remove the air cleaner/inlet duct assembly.
3.Unfasten the battery hold-down, then remove the battery from the vehicle. Place the battery in a safe location, but do not store on a concrete surface or discharge will result. Next, unfasten and remove the battery tray. Note that one battery tray bolt is located in the fender well area.
4.For 1992-98 vehicles, remove the transaxle strut-to-cradle bracket through-bolt located on the radiator side of the transaxle. Flip the transaxle strut out of the way.
5.Disengage the back-up light switch and vehicle speed sensor electrical connectors from the transaxle. Remove the vent tube retaining clip and discard if damaged.
6.Remove the 2 ground terminals from the top 2 clutch housing studs.
7.On 1991 vehicles, unclip the oxygen sensor wire from the clutch housing.
8.On 1991 DOHC engines, remove the nut from the cradle-to-front engine cable bracket at the front right corner of the cradle, below the water pump.
9.Remove the top 2 clutch housing studs.
10.Remove the electronic ignition coil module. Discard the old coil retaining bolts and replace with new bolts upon installation.
11.For 1991 vehicles, loosen the 2 front transaxle mount-to-transaxle bolts.
12.Remove the shifter cables from the shift arms and clutch housing, taking care not to damage the cable bolt.
13.Rotate the clutch slave cylinder 1 / 4 turn counterclockwise while pushing into the clutch housing, then remove the cylinder from the housing. Remove the 2 clutch hydraulic damper-to-clutch housing bolts, then wire the hydraulic assembly to the upper radiator hose.
14.Wire the radiator to the upper radiator support to hold the assembly in place when the cradle is removed.
15.Install engine support bar assembly tool SA9105E or an equivalent. Make sure the support feet are positioned on the outer edge of the shock tower, the bar hooks are connected to the engine bracket and the stabilizer foot is on the engine block, to the right of the engine oil dipstick.
16.Raise the front of the vehicle sufficiently to lower the transaxle and engine cradle. Support the vehicle safely using jackstands. Make sure the jackstands are not positioned under the engine cradle. Remove the drain plug from the lower center of the housing and drain the transaxle fluid into a clean container.
17.Remove the front wheels and the left, right and center splash shields from the vehicle. For coupes, remove the left and right lower facia braces.
18.For 1992-98 vehicles, remove the front engine strut cradle bracket-to-cradle nuts from below the cradle.
19.Remove the transaxle mount-to-cradle nut from under the cradle.
20.Remove the front exhaust pipe nuts at the manifold, then disconnect the pipe from the support bracket.
21.Remove the front pipe-to-catalytic converter bolts and lower the pipe from the vehicle.
22.Remove the engine-to-transaxle stiffening bracket bolts and remove the bracket. For 1991 vehicles, remove the rear transaxle mount bracket-to-transaxle bolt, then loosen the mount bolt and allow the bracket to hang out of the way.
23.Remove the clutch housing dust cover. Remove the steering rack-to-cradle bolts and wire the gear for support when cradle is removed. Remove the brake line and retainer from the cradle.
24.Remove and discard the cotter pin from the lower ball joints. Back off the ball joint nut until the top of the nut is even with the top of the threads.
25.Use ball joint separator tool SA9132S or equivalent to separate the ball joint from the lower control arm, then remove the nut. Do not use a wedge tool or seal damage may occur.

The outer CV-joint for vehicles equipped with ABS contains a speed sensor ring. Use of an incorrect tool to separate the control arm from the knuckle may result in damage to and loss of the ABS system.

26.For 1991 vehicles, remove the front transaxle mount-to-cradle nuts and the engine lower mount-to-cradle nuts. These nuts are all located under the front or side cradle members.
27.Position two 4 in. x 4 in. x 36 in. pieces of wood onto a powertrain support dolly, then position the dolly under the vehicle and against the cradle.
28.Remove the 4 cradle-to-body bolts and carefully lower the cradle from the vehicle with the support dolly. Tape or wire the 2 large washers from the rear cradle-to-body attachments in position to prevent loss.
29.Support the transaxle securely with a suitable jack.
30.Use an appropriate prybar to separate the left side halfshaft from the transaxle. Remove the halfshaft sufficiently to install seal protector tool SA91112T or equivalent around the shaft and into the seal to prevent cuts by the shaft spline.
31.Remove the 2 bottom clutch housing-to-engine bolts and install a guide bolt into the bottom rear clutch housing bolt hole from the side of the engine block.
32.Carefully separate the transaxle from the engine enough to clear the intermediate shaft (on the right side) and lower the transaxle from the vehicle.

To install:

33.Installation of the manual transaxle assembly is the reverse of removal. However, please note the following important steps:
34.Use a 6 x 1.0mm tap to clean the sealant from the ignition coil module mounting holes.
35.Place the transaxle assembly securely onto the jack and position under the vehicle for installation. Install axle seal protectors into the seals on both sides.
36.Tighten the 2 lower clutch housing-to-engine bolts to 103 ft. lbs. (140 Nm). Do not use the bolts to draw the transaxle to the engine.
37.Be sure to remove the seal protectors before installing the halfshaft. Push the halfshaft all the way into the transaxle and install the snapring. Remove the transaxle jack.
38.Clean and lubricate the ball joint threads before installing the ball joints into the knuckles.
39.Verify the correct positioning of the lower control arm ball studs to the knuckles, the cooling module support bushings, the engine strut bracket and the transaxle mount.
40.Insert 9 / 16 inch round steel rods into the cradle-to-body alignment holes, near the front cradle-to-body fastener holes.
41.Tighten the 4 cradle-to-body mounting bolts to 155 ft. lbs. (210 Nm). Remove the support dolly, then the engine support bar assembly.
42.For 1992-98 vehicles, tighten the transaxle strut-to-cradle bracket through-bolt and nut to 52 ft. lbs. (70 Nm).
43.Remove the radiator assembly support wire.
44.Tighten the new ignition module bolts, with sealant, to 71 inch lbs. (8 Nm) and verify that the bolt heads are properly seated on the ignition module.
45.Tighten the 2 top clutch housing-to-engine studs to 74 ft. lbs. (100 Nm). Tighten the 2 ground terminals to 19 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
46.Install the 2 slave cylinder-to-clutch housing nuts and tighten to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
47.Tighten the battery tray assembly bolts to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
48.For 1991 vehicles, tighten the front transaxle mount-to-transaxle bolts and install the front transaxle mount cradle nuts. Tighten the fasteners to 35 ft. lbs. (48 Nm). Then, install the right side mount-to-cradle nuts and tighten to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
49.For 1992-98 vehicles, tighten the transaxle lower mount-to-cradle fastener and the 2 engine strut cradle bracket-to-cradle nuts to 37 ft. lbs. (50 Nm).
50.Tighten the steering gear bolts and nuts to 37 ft. lbs. (50 Nm).
51.Tighten the clutch housing dust cover fasteners to 97 inch lbs. (11 Nm).
52.Tighten the powertrain stiffening bracket bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
53.Tighten the exhaust manifold-to-exhaust pipe retaining nuts in a crosswise pattern to 23 ft. lbs. (31 Nm). Tighten the front pipe-to-catalytic converter flange bolts to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm). Finally, tighten the front pipe-to-engine support bracket fasteners to 23 ft. lbs. (31 Nm).

If the converter flange threads are damaged, use the Saturn 21010753 converter fastener kit in place of the self-tapping screws to provide proper clamp load and prevent exhaust leaks.

54.Tighten the ball joint nuts to 55 ft. lbs. (75 Nm). Continue to tighten the nuts as necessary and install new cotter pins.
55.For coupes, install the right left lower facia braces, J-nuts and fasteners. Tighten the fasteners to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
