Anyone ever replace the right side (rear) exhaust manifold on a 2001
Impala? I just looked at the procedure from GM, and one of the steps
says to "Rotate the engine to access the right side of the engine."
Exactly WHAT does that mean, and how is it accomplished? It says
nothing about what to remove, how to do it, nothing. Is this a major
operation that they just leave out because it would take 200 steps??
Any help/tips on how to do it would be appreciated.

FWIW this reminds me of a 197x Lancia my brother in law owned.
He broke a fan belt and when he went to replace it the book said it could
be done two different ways.
1. Remove the engine.
2. Remove the body.
Note: It is generally easier to remove the body.
I wish I had kept a copy of that manual!!!
Hopefully the Impala is easier :)
If it has the two torque struts at the top front:
At the radiator support, to the top of the engine, remove the bolts to
those, there usually two extra bolt holes to hold the motor forward, in
park, if you push the car backwards, the engine will move forward.
You put the bolts in the torque strut, in the rubber end in one end, then in
the eyelet in the other end to hold the motor forward.
I hope this helps?
