In a much poorer youth I had to exchange the gearbox of my fathers Citroën GS, using a Haynes manual.
To say that the instructions were incomplete is quite an understatement.

You couldn't remove it downwards as the wheel suspension subframe was in the way. So I had to remove the engine.
The engine couldn't be lifted upward, because there was a strengthening beam going between the wheel arches.
So I had to remove the front of the car in cluding headlamps and everything, so that I could lift the engine forward. We didn't have an engine lift.

Try to imagine in how many ways the manual was incomplete when the job had this many steps, as described in chapter 11.
This whole job took me two weeks. But I learned a lot during the experience.

A couple of years later I had a Ford Granada. It was a bit simpler mechanically.
And I had to exchange the clutch on it.
That took me two and a half hours including lunch. Still using a Haynes manual.
Experience helps a lot. Not having a Citroën helps more.
People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.
