How do you change a Ford F-150 transsmission?

Its a pain. You first have to drop the torsion bars under the truck. Then get a pulley puller and push the torsion bars back up to remove the metal pieces holding the torsion bars in. Remove the puller and take the torsion bars off. You will then need to remove the bracket holding the torsion bars. ONce that is done, you will have enough clearance to drop the tranny. The hard part is getting the torsion bars back on. Come to think of it, I think you can buy a tool from Ford to pull the torsion bars off. It pretty expensive that why I use a pully puller. Not all F-150s have torsion bars. Buy a Chilton Repair Manual for your correct year. It'll tell you everything step by step.

How do you remove a Torsion bar on a 95 Z71?

First jack the truck up and put a jack stand under the frame, MAKE IT SAFE now Loosen the torsion bar adjusting bolt all the way with out removing the bolt completely. be sure you count the turns you take on the bolt, and record it. You will need info later. Now remove wheel and put a floor jack under the lower control arm close to the ball joint. Now take the nut off the lower ball joint, Now raise the hub assy. and rotor up and off the lower ball joint and wedge a block of wood in some were to hold it in place, out of the way. You will have to remove bottom bolt in the shock. Now remove the torsion bar adjusting bolt, and count the rest of the turns it takes to remove the bolt and add that to your first count, and record it. When putting bolt back in later, TURN BOLT SAME # OF TURNS BACK IN THAT YOU RECORDED EARLYER Now remove lower control arm bolts and mark the torsion bar were it goes into the lower control arm, remove control arm and torsion bar at the same time as a unit. Lay on floor and slide bar out.

How do you replace VW Bug torsion bar system?

Your best bet would be to purchase a Haynes manual. Remember... safety first! Jist: disconnect brake lines,remove hub cap , loosen lug nuts, remove cotter pin and 36 mm, jack up car and secure on jack stands, remove wheel, remove drum brake, remove emergency brake cable, remove the clip holding brakeline and disconnect brakeline from the trailing arm. remove lower shock mount, notch the trailing arm and spring bar to ease realignment, remove driveshaft. remove 17 mm Allen nut on trailing arm and the three bolts holding trailing arm to torsion arm... remove trailing arm. Put a jack under the torsion arm and jack it up until the arm lifts slightly off of the stops. Remove the four bolts and the torsion plate, remove the outter bushing. IMPORTANT: (do at your own risk) do not get any part of your body underneath the torsion bar while in this position... you could get hurt. With a prybar, pry the torsion arm past the stops and slowly lower your jack. Once the torsion arm is under no stress, use an angle finder to find the angle (will help with reassembly). Remove the torsion arm and inner bushing. Remove the torsion bar. Assemble... in reverse probably... haven't done it yet. Hope this helps.
