Angry 1 bolt left

'87 190d....attempting to remove auto. trans. to rebuild-or have it done,-but can't get the top bolt. I've read many posts, go at it from below,(worked well,except the top bolt), I tried laying on the motor, but there is a "pipe" in the way,(heater line?). is a 190 so different from the rest? only 1/2" to 1" clearance at sides & top? I'm about ready to put all back & take the whole car to a shop.( two 5 hr. days spent so far).........jerry

I think folks have reached it from under the car with a combination of long extensions and a universal joint.

Exactly.

I've done it several times - you will need about 3 feet of total extension length, a u joint, and a regular length socket. Work from under the car, and "feel" the bolt head with your fingers if possible as you get the socket close.

It works even better if you have a skinny-armed helper guide the socket on while you work the ratchet handle. There are actually 2 "top" bolts which are level with one another - 1 on the drivers side, 1 on the pass side. 10 bolts total.

Thanks for the info. Thats pretty much what I used, got the rt. bolt, it's just the left one that I can't get the socket on.....any advice on how to clean the outside of the trans. when I get it out. I would welcome info on a trans. rebuilder within about 150 miles of daytona bch...also..........jerry

Removed crossmember?

Have you removed the tranny crossmember? If I remember correctly, lowering the back of the trans give a little more room to get to those top bolts.

I like to take the grimy trannies to the coin-op car wash and blast away, using a spray bottle of simple green to soften up the crud.
