Finally got the combustion engine out of the Xsara. It didn't come out quite as willingly as I had hoped, but I still managed to remove just the engine without taking out the transmission with it. Taking out the transmission would have meant dismantling the drive shafts and such. A task which I found quite unappealing. In any case, mission accomplished. I already have a buyer for the engine as well. He should be picking it up on Sunday. After taking the pictures I was also able to unbolt the flywheel.
