825i transmission - right angle drive removal

Im looking at #11 in the pic of the manual.

I seen paoutdoorsman post and was wondering if any of you had any suggestions on how to remove the "right angle drive" from the transmission... I see in the manual its bolted on and has 2 internal pins but the gasket goop is holding it in place and I cant get it to budge... do you have any suggestions on how to get it off.. tried heating it up and prying with a bar but that didn't work... maybe I need to get it hotter?? Or r is there some chemical I should use to get the gasket goo off?

You need a little more muscle, a little bit of that wiggle wiggle and a rubber hammer.

Usually i grab one of my coworkers when iam doing something like this.
Id wiggle it and hed hit it

Also, never heat it, that shouldnt be the answer.
You can gently try to cut the sealant but most of the times theyre just really stuck.
All you need is time, patience and a good hammer or prybar

No chemical or heat needed for this process. A few good whacks with a rubber mallet should pop the sealant loose - after all 5 bolts are loosened or removed of course. After that it just slides off the shaft.

got it out finally ... hit with rubber hammer a couple of times and then just muscled it off. took less then 5 minutes. i didn't want to wreck anything earlier so thats why i asked... i was pulling and wiggling it and the whole machine was moving so i was a bit nervous i was going to break something and figured i must have missed some hidden bolt or something... but just like the posts above mentioned just takes a little bit of fuss and a rubber hammer. Now i am working on trying to make a make shift hoist to hold the transmission while i remove the final bolts. then i get to figure out what parts i need. maybe ill get this done by next week... fingers crossed.

thanks for the help. if you have any suggestions on home made hoists ill take those as well.

I just lift them out by hand. They're not as heavy as they look.

Also, pay close attention to the shims on the bottom center mount. They need to go back exactly as they were. This is critical to maintain alignment of the clutches.

hey paoutdoorsman well i took the bottom center bolt out and there is no shims ... it is just a flange bolt. are the shims further back between the trans and frame ?? i assume the bolt you are referring to is the one below the 5 bolts i took off on the clutch side mount bracket as the manual says to remove it and the shims.. wondering if someone already had this apart and didn't put them on... while i wait to see if you respond ill look through the manual to see if i can find the parts diagram. to see if i can locate where these shims are.

Go to partscatalog.deere.com for diagrams and part numbers.

When buying parts compare pricing between your local dealership and online dealers such as Green Farm Parts and Green Parts Store.

paoutdoorsman - or are these the shims you are talking about ? this manual is all over the place... it doesn't show these until you go to trans installation... i really am not liking this manual... im not sure if it is because i bought a pdf version (i assumed it was made from the original manual but maybe not). it just seems it doesn't go in the correct sequence for things and or show all that it should at certain steps. oh well the joys of trying to save money always seem to give me a headache LOL.
