Can the CVT be removed without the engine?

And if so, does it come out the top or bottom?

Its probably safer to drop the whole cradle and split it out of the car

Then how about lifting them them out together from the top? Don't think I could raise the body high enough to drop the cradle.

Well, decided to take out together from the top. Biggest concern was not to open up the A/C since it uses the R1234yf freon at about $100 a pound. Was barely able to swing the compressor and condenser aside.

I can say fwith certainty, that if it becomes necessary to remove engine & CVT out of the car, I will NOT attempt it!

Actually I like my 2017 CVT so much after driving it for 2.5 years, I would not be mad if it started acting up,

because I would love to buy another brand new 2020 or later Spark for replacement.
