I'm pretty mechanically inclined, and I've done a few transmission pull and swaps, but never front wheel drive. I'm going to try it myself to say I did, and to save some money. I wasn't able to mess with it yesterday. I have to move the pool table over some in the garage to get the car in, and I couldn't find helpers on super bowl sunday.
Chances are it is the trans, but the cv clip would be a nice surprise.
