Various people debate the out the top vs. out the bottom technique:

It's how most shops remove engines...for Hondas anyhow.
Most front wheel drives engine/transmisions go out the bottom.
This would fail a police examination immediately in Australia.
Huh. I definiately had to 'lift' the Passat engine to do the waterpump.
All things considered, it probably is as easy to lift a metro off the motor than to remove the hood and lift out the engine.
