Yes, had to take out the whole transmission! 6 - 8 hrs labor.

i probably won't buy an open trailer, unless i can find a really good deal on a used featherlite aluminum trailer.
i'll probably just rent a uhaul open aluminum trailer for the times i need it.

I took your guys advice and made an appointment to get the sub-frame looked at by Schomp. They seem like great people just by the way they handled the phone call and offered a loaner.

Strange. I thought the procedure was to take out the intake manifold and remove the pump from the top.

The reason is probably that the M5 is an 8 cylinder and you can't get the pump out through the top. Just a guess!

All paid by the extended warranty from Zurich except for the clutch.
