2 ways take subframe out first then lower car down and place something under engine and trani and un bolt engine and trani mounts and lift vehicle up . Thats if you are using a hoist. Or sometimes i remove everything at once from the bottom . In one shot . Hoist needed takes about an hour for me . But ive down alot of engines.

Not enough space to write all that you need to do..But I believe you seperate the engine from the tranny first and the engine pull out from the top and the tranny goes out the bottom..Good luck.

dspabout:
Are you reasonably mechanically inclined?
I don;t want to offend, so please take this the way it's meant.
Removing the engine is a very advanced sort of procedure on a car of this era / design. Not that it can't be done in your own garage, but your questions lead me to wonder if you have looked at the project yet? Have you tried to look at all of the ways it comes apart? If you look at it, even without the instructions posted above, you should probably be able to answer that last question yourself.
I would just hate to see you suffer the frustration of biting-off more than you can chew. I've done that with projects in the past, and very few things are as depressing (at least to me).
So I'd suggest that if you have never done this before, take a deep breath. Read the instructions, get a manual, take inventory of your tools, and your skills. Then tackle it with the knowledge that you can do it, or DON'T tackle it, with the understanding that we do not all possess that sort of patience, or skill, or maybe even tools... and we don't have to!

Again, don;t be offended. If you;re sitting there at your computer, grease to your armpits, bloody-knuckled and pissed-off at the world 'cuz you've been looking all damn day at the car and it just don;t make no sense.... then I can relate.... I've been there.
Good luck.

It normally goes out the bottom. If you have a hoist that's the way to go. I saw removed from the top once, it was big mistake and took the tech all day. Out the bottom with the hoist and no seized fasteners in the subframe/suspension and it should come out in just a couple of hours assuming some experience. I usually leave the trans and engine attached to each other but then I'm using a badass Rotunda lift table. I've seen one out in 25 minutes with the table but that's an experienced heavy jag tech.

Yes, remove the steering shaft first from inside the car, 2 10mm bolts.

One thing to remember if you use the JTIS procedures. JTIS assumes a few things like you know what your doing, you know how to navigate the disc, you have the jaguar special tools, you have been classroom trained, the JTIS is far from a complete service manual, I consider it a rough start.
