Folks,
Inner boot torn on my LHS driveshaft. Bought Beck & Arnley's replacement boot (103-2968) and planning to d o the job shortly.
The workshop manual calls for draining of transmission oil. I'm wondering if I can do it without draining, or is the level going to be too high and will start spilling the moment I pull the driveshaft out?
I recall doing the same on a Subaru without spilling as much as a drop of oil.

All shops are closed now here due to this pandemic hysteria and I have no access to vehicle lift, so, need to improvise. Thanks!

As far As I can remember no fluid should come out. if it does it will be very little.

As stated above very little or none will escape. No need to drain fluid. Why do you need a lift? Easily done with jack stands. The half shaft is on the right side, not left. More involved than LS .

Thanks, folks, for your replies and help. Will be doing the job next week now, parts got held up.
EHONDA1 - sorry, I was talking about the lift in context of ATF oil change, I know I can do the drive shaft with just jack stands, but it gets a bit tight to properly drain the transmission fluid.
