Removing transfer box on drive?

I've got a new transfer box coming and I've been quoted about £300 (£50 hr) to get it done by my local mitsubishi specialist.

Few people have said I can do it myself but just want a few options.

I'm pretty mechanically minded and done a few gearbox and engine changes on previous cars.

Can I do it on my drive with some axle stands or am I best to take it to a garage to get it done and pay the money?


Cheers
Ben

Yeah of course you can remove it on your drive, bit fiddly though due to the amount of room you have, get it as high as you can and you'll do fine

Easy enough to do on the drive if you lift it high enough on a couple of stands. The subframe does not need to be removed.
Heres a good little how to you may find helpful.

No need to take subframe off on e7/8/9, remove the rear section of the transfer box (4 bolts), jack up front of engine, transfer box can then come out the gap.

Lol. Sponners .. Have you tried to do that then ? That is possible on the drive way on stands but I've done lots of E456 and E789 and that is the hardest way to do it . If it's on a ramp I would still drop the sub frame .

Done loads of gearboxes and clutches on my back on e7-9 Paul and never once taken the subframe out. Time depends on how pushed for time I am 2h to strip down is possible though. Bit longer to build up and fill all fluids etc though.

I must add though I'm on a 100% flat floor and quite well equipped with good jacks, tools and stands etc. Wouldn't fancy it on the average driveway!
