That does look nasty, so long as you are ok though as cars can be fixed. :D

what do you mean take the engine out? have done the same thing before and just dropped the subframe?


i used an engine hoist to move the engine as far as possible without removing the drive shafts or exhaust.


it seemed like the most obvious thing to me at the time!
