youl need to unbolt the calipers and hang them somewhere.
need to unbolt the steering shaft (12mm bolt) and slid it out as your droping the frame. (provided your droping the rack with the frame)
2 14mm bolts on each side at the rear of the subframe.
2 19mm i bileve bolts on each side at the front. you will need a tube socket and extension.
i think the engine mount nuts may be 14mm aswell
use a engine hoist or something to hold the engine up. if you can lift the engine high enough to get the mounts out of the subframe
use a jack or something under the subframe. dont be surprised if it doesnt drop without assistance.
