08 4cyl fed trans? Hell?

So, how hard is pulling a trans from an 08 fwd, 4cyl vue? I have pulled a caddy north star trans. And a Buick Regal 3.8 fwd trans. Is it a job from hell?

Re: Ac dash light

Are you saying 30 should always be hot? And send voltage to 87 and clutch? IGN off, 30 has no juice. IGN on, no juice.
