There is a carrier bearing on the back side of the engine block just above the oil pan with three 14mm bolts in it. You'll need to remove those. Unbolt the brake caliper via the bracket (removes entire assembly) via 18MM bolts. Remove 1 1/4 inch axle nut in the center of the hub. Then remove the two bolts and nuts from the strut assembly (just above the hub and rotor) and shake the assembly loose. Once the axle is freed from the hub (you may need a hammer to do this) go under the car and use a prybar or large screwdriver and pry the axle loose. It might take some elbow grease, but it will come out. When it starts to move when prying, grab it and give it a vigorous shake while pulling outward. Should slide right out. I just had to do an engine in my '89 which required the removal of the 5 speed trans as well, but if you have an automatic the setup should not be much different. Hope this helps, email email@example.com if you have any more Probe questions pertaining to the first generation.
does anything need to be taken off to remove a started on 89 ford probe
Ford Probe was created in 1989.
Once you remove the dust cover attached to your shifter, you'll see your shaft going into a gear box. There will be a pin to remove and this will allow you to pull the shifter right out. good luck

how to check the fluid on a manual transmission for a 1989 ford probe gt
If you have the original factory tank, it has a drain plug (bottom center) you can remove with a wrench.
If you're talking about the VSS, it's located at the top of the transmission, above the transmission output shaft. It looks like a probe, but you're only going to see the top of it until you remove it.
The Rotor has a small bolt that holds the Rotor on the shaft. Did you Loosen this bolt?
you dont, if you want to disconnect it then remove your front drive shaft.
It unscrews by turning counterclockwise. There is a small "flat" on the shaft to assist in removal.
The rotor only fits one way on to the distributor shaft.
if you have the exhaust manifold, oil lines, etc. from the 89 GT then yes.
