Re: 2000 malibu transmission/transaxle removal
From what I have experienced it is easier to drop the trans out of the bottom, but that is based off of doing the work on a lift. You may be able to take the engine and trans out from the top, and it may be easier if you are doing the work on the ground. The only other way I have seen it done is to unbolt the engine from the trans and remove it to have more room to remove the trans.
