I started the swap this weekend. I got the DSG removed tonight. Once everything was unbolted on the transmission and I attempted to lower it the passenger side drive flange was binding on the engine and the drivers side drive flange was binding on the control arm. Every thread and video I have ran across advised to either remove the control arm/subframe or pull the radiator and shift the engine forward. I found a much easier way my friends. I SIMPLY REMOVED BOTH DRIVE FLANGES and the trans literally lowered right out of the car.
