And...I learned a hard lesson - NEVER, NEVER lower the tranny when you don't have the engine on its mounts and only having it hanging by the single lift hole by the passenger side. As I lowered the DCT and as I was inspecting the Mechatronics, I didn't realize it swung so far out and was pressed against the passenger side of the tunnel. I lifted the tranny back up but it was so cock-eyed leaning to the passenger side. So I decided I need to put back the subframe, hoping it would straighten it out. Unfortunately, I couldn't line up the subframe to the chassis because it was off as much as 6 inches! It took me a couple of hours, a Harbor Freight engine jack holding the tranny, 3 different jacks to line eveything up again...all on my back.
Jeez, that sounds like a scary experience before you managed to get it back in place!
