No doubt. But someone above suggested labor to replace a transmission could be 20 hours and $5000 if not more. Seriously doubt that’s correct.On the Macan they drop the entire front subframe with engine, transmission and front suspension all in one unit.
It's by design, and it's a good one. It makes reaching all the tricky fasteners easier and there are a lot of quick disconnects. Plus the dealers are well practiced.
When I had my boxster and had to take the engine out I started with the transmission and then removed the engine. When I was doing it I was sure you could drop the whole thing out as I described above
Was at the dealer buying a gasket. I saw a boxster on the lift and they were dropping the whole thing. With the right lift would be a quick job
