i FINALLY got the bad motor out of my 99 NB .... now I'm wondering whats he best method to get the new motor back in without taking everything off of it....

is it possible to pull my trans and mate it to the engine and put them in together from the bottom without a lift?

or is it possible to remove the front clip without disconnecting the A/C evaporator and put them in from the front?

On my husband's Jetta TDI, we pulled the front off and sort of pulled the condenser out of the way. Removed engine that way. Did the timing belt job and trans swap. And reinstalled. The NB is a bit tighter fit, but I don't see why you couldn't try it.
