Hello everyone!

Will be picking up a ‘12 Elantra with the 1.8 engine over the weekend with a bad engine.

My question is, can the engine be removed from the top?
I’ve searched everywhere and seems like most drop engine/trans etc as an assembly from the bottom with a lift. I plan on doing this in my garage and much rather do it from the top if possible. I’ve done many replacements on rwd vehicles and they’re as simple as separating trans and pulling out engine from top but I feel like this one may be different.

Any input is much appreciated!
Thank you!
