bronco - I have done it on the XC90, which is a bit more complicated as it is AWD, but it is close enough. Unfortunately I don't have VIDA as I gave the computer and the car to my sister.

You are correct there are various steps that you are missing, and I would assume those that have done it have used the VIDA instructions for these portions. It is fairly simple if you have the program.

You can do a little searching and find out how to load VIDA on to your computer, you do not need the scanner portion, only the instruction portion which can be found on-line. There is a section for VIDA here: viewforum.php?f=40

Once you have it installed and running enter your car model and relevant specs and look up valve body removal - not transmission removal. You are correct on what you have to do, only missing some steps. For example, the wire harness on the front of the engine cradle, transmission line and/or steering line mount points and things like that.

Once the valve body cover is off it is like the Impala video. You can even raise the engine back up during reassembly to make it easier (parallel to the ground) , and then lower it again to put the valve cover back on.

Maybe RickHaleParker will chime in with the relevant steps as he is a VIDA master.

I did some googling about and I think I found a vida2014 link . It looks to be 13 zip files of about 700mb each.

Is that what we are talking about?

I always thought VIDA and DICE were referring only to a hardware scanner of some sort and I only have older volvos that I have needed anything but an OBD2 scanner to this point

it is 13 zip files ! I try to unzip 001 and it asks for a password? It also claims it needs 120GB free space I probably dont have that on the computer I downloaded with anyway

We want to support the engine and trans from above at about the height it normally sits and lower mainly the drivers side of the subframe ?

My jack stands obviously can't stay where they are or I won't be able to undo the subframe.
As for VIDA down load and install: Go here and read pages at least pages 1, 6 & 16.

Sound like you're a good candidate for my method. If you take the headlights, grille, heat exchanges and the front bumper (Metal bumper not just the bumper cover). The front will be wide open then you can drop engine, transmission and subframe with a Cherry picker or gentry about 4 inches, then pull the whole nine yards all straight forward to get it all out. You will also be able to see and most of the wiring from the front. Don't forget the wiring to the rack and pinion.

Pulled the whole nine yards out of this S60R with the Cherry picker.
Did the same on two XC90 using the same basic method.

In the case of the S60R. I dropped it all down onto the legs of the Cherry picker then use the Cherry Picker as a dolly. On the XC90s I was using wheeled gentry. Rolled it all out and loaded it onto a four wheel cart.

To get it off the Cherry Picker you place three Jack stands between the legs. Lower assembly onto jack stands. Pull Cherry picker out from under.

I'll try to get the vida up and running first but the pull the whole thing idea should work for me if I dont manage that.

I looked at the vida thread no joy with the link on page 16 , the translated part fails like maybe the original link it was translating moved out from under it

OK the IT person is going to work on VIDA for me but I decided to proceed just by using a few clues spread across multiple posts and videos and whatnot in case they dont prove to be up to the computer end of the deal.

It seems to me that most people unbolt all the engine and trans mounts lift the engine to remove weight from the subframe and then lower the subframe moreso on the drivers side. so I supported the engine , unloaded the subframe began lowering the subframe and found that the u joint is pretty well bonded to the steering rack and doesnt want to come off. I soaked it in liquid wrench and paused to think for a day or so.

Does the rack actually have to come off the steering shaft though? What if I unbolt the rack from the subframe and support the rack so the subframe can fall away from it?

Assuming I can get the ujoint to release the shaft I am thinking it may be annoying to reattach it later so maybe if the subframe can sag out from under the rack I don't need to undo it?

On the XC90, from the inside of the car, remove (push up) the rubber boot where the column meets the floor. Under the boot you will find a nut that you loosen and that is all that is required. Everything in the engine bay is left alone. I don't recall if the action is pull up to release or push down - make some kind of mark so you can true it up when you are done.

Did you disconnect the mounting points for the transmission lines, (maybe fuel around oil pan area) power steering lines and any electrical harnesses? Torque strut bar on top? I also think the coolant hoses on the firewall need to be disconnected for the lowering. Transmission harness from above where it enters the transmission? As to the lines, I don't recall removing any of them - just disconnecting them via some 10mm bolts/nuts. If you take it slow and go up and down watching for any hang ups you will catch any you miss. Each one is noted in VIDA - which if your tech friend gets going will make life easier.

I recall removing the driver side rear subframe bolt, maybe the driver side front - and just loosening a large amount the two passenger side bolts. Then lowering the engine/transmission on the driver side until it cleared the rail via the engine support bar I had running across the top and radiator support.

This was for my XC90, but it should be about the same.
