I won’t be doing it for a little while as I need to get my other car back on the road first.

But, either way, 🤞🤞. I’ll let you know how I get on when I do it.

Thanks for your advice.

Cheers

Julian

Never had a C8 but the AM6 on the C5 comes out without too much difficulty, as many on here know I bought my C5 with the gearbox gone awol , found a second hand box and fitted it myself, easier than a manual box.

One warning the box weighs in at 93Kg so you need some muscle to move it around. :)

There's a lot more room in a C5 than a C8 engine bay and consequently the C5 official guide does not require the engine out to replace the AM6 Eric, so that's probably why. :wink:

Thanks guys, but WOW ! I’d never have thought there was more room in the C5 than the C8 (and I’m not talking of interior space :? )

When/if I get round to doing it I’ll post back on here.

Cheers

While the C8 appears to be a larger vehicle it is a people carrier (rather than a car) so more space is given over to the cabin. This obviously means that there is less space elsewhere (including the engine bay).

Very true - the engine is halfway underneath the dashboard !!
