Swapping a EPC solenoid on a GP today. Not a horribly hard job, but still a bit of a PITA.
Started with pulling the axles.
Then I needed to drop the sub frame. Again, not all that hard. Unbolting the steering rack was easier on a W body then on a H body. The W body the bolts can be removed with the sway bar in place, on a H body the sway bar needs to be removed. Not sure if all W bodies are this way, but this one was. After that it was just unclip the wires for the WSS, and remove on small bolt for the power steering lines. Then one engine mount and one trans mount. 4 bolts and down it went.
Then started to lower the engine. Only needs to come down a few inches.
It'* a tight fit, but the side pan just fits.
All this work, simply to replace this.
After unplugging it, I then remove this one clip.
And out comes the old solenoid.
The sad thing is, I spent more time taking those last two pictures, then I did replacing the solenoid.
Then it'* a simple mater of putting it all back together. Total time, about 5 hours.
