ZF 5 HP-24A Teardown: Step 3: Side Mounts

We removed the transmission mounts on either side of the transmission.

Each side was attached with (as I recall) three Torx T40 bolts.

Before or after this step is a good time to raise the transmission up on the transmission jack, because from here on concerns about dirt contamination increase significantly. We made the mistake of centering the considerable weight of this transmission on the transmission jack, and then as we started dismantling the transmission from the front, the center of gravity moved significantly towards the rear and we regretted not having anticipated, and compensated for, that sequence of events.
