Ketoe is on a distinguished road
I just replaced the motor, everything else is original. I removed the bumper and the supporting structures along with the radiator, disconnected the tranny from the driveshaft, and once free, pulled the engine and tranny out together through the front. I had a gantry with a chain-fall connected to the front bumper supports which made it easy to raise and lower the car as necessary. This was the first time I have done this to an X5 so it was a learning curve. Now, I think it would take me a couple hours to drop the motor, always easier the second time around.
