We remove the car engine by lowering it down together with the gearbox from the engine compartment

This task will require a lift to raise the front of the car.

If we are working in a garage, in the absence of a lift, we need a jack and strong high supports to install a raised front part of the car on them, which will make it possible to remove the engine from under it.

Tools required: wrenches for 10, 13, 16, 18, sockets for 16, 18, a set of screwdrivers, a container for coolant, hydraulic support.

Removing and installing Renault Duster engine

Lower the engine on its stands, keeping it from falling. If it is not possible to lower the engine on supports, hang the front part of the car (raise the car on a lift) to a height sufficient to remove the power unit from under the car, and place reliable supports under the body.

Install the engine, as well as all removed components and parts, in the reverse order of removal, taking into account the following:

- before installing the power unit, clean the threaded holes for fastening its supports with a tap;

- be sure to replace the exhaust pipe gasket with a new one;

- when connecting wires and pipelines, carefully monitor their location in the engine compartment, avoiding contact with heating and moving elements of the power unit.

After installing the motor, do the following.

Fill in the oil

Refill coolant.

Start the engine and check for fuel, oil and coolant leaks.

Check the oil pressure.

Listen to the engine, it should run smoothly, without extraneous noise and knocks.
