transaxle swap

Ok, i have a wrecked 1988 accord lxi and a running 88 prelude si, and the boots and bearings on the transaxle are almost shot, they are torn but still are running, like i said i have an 88 accord lxi, would the good transaxle's in the accord directly swap over the the prelude?

I replaced my right front transaxel just two weeks ago. I ordered the part from my local auto parts store, and when I compaired them, they looked the same. Well they were not!!!. the new one was about 5cm shorter on the transmission end and the circlip would not lock in. Just get the parts, compaire all dimensions and drive on.

transaxle = transmission in FWD cars, so in short... no you cannot swap over the 3g accord transaxle for the 3G prelude one. The engines lean differently, bolt patterns and transaxle mounts/brackets aren't the same.

As far as axles go, pull them out and line them up, the spline count on the hub and at the differential are the same, if they're the same length then they can be interchanged
