Question Getting started - big question.

So, I've got the car jacked up and I've removed all of the plastic shields. It is extremely tight around the mechatronic wiring entry point into the transmission. It would be immensely helpful if I could remove the rear cross member from the transmission without providing some additional support. In other words, will the fact that it's mounted to the motor and to the drive shaft be enough to hold the transmission in place while I work?

I can post a pic if needed but it's the aluminum cross member under the back (rear) of the transmission.

Thanks in advance.

Jeff
