my experience with FWD is, it is easiest if you remove the cradle from the bottom.. that gives you good access to everything, as the engine, trans and lower 1/2 of the suspension is attached to it

pull the struts off the control arms, cut your fuel line ( and plug it ).. disconnect the rack and drop the cradle.. the engine can easilly come out the top of the cradle with plenty of room to work..
