beaming brace, where is it ,what does it do?
Never heard of it.
Where did you get it from ?
Or do you mean a strut brace?
googling it appears to be a strut brace
joins the top of the strut towers to prevent body flex
yes perhaps u r right or @ least in the general vacinity, i think it may b a -cross member of the frame,my manuel says u hav 2 remove it if u want 2 take of the front timing cover not sure y though, its not even in that area but it says to remove it if u hav a supercharged v6 3.8lt (vx like i do) or 3.6lt vy-vz v8's also i think. its such a big job u hav 2 lift the engine remove brake calipers& disc's ect ect going by what the manuel says
what ever it is, it has to b removed prior 2 removing the front timing cover on an l67, not sure y, i think its a-cross member or something like that. its no where near the timing cover such a hassle u hav 2 support the frame, take of the disc's ect according 2 the manuel noz.

The beaming brace, well there are two of them actually, join the V6 engine sump to the automatic. They are held by three bolts on each brace, the large bolts on the gearbox end are torqued pretty tight. This is what they look like on a 2000 VT 3.8L Auto.
dont forget the heads, radiator, aircon conponents, h/balancer etc + you need to be a licenced aircon guru to degas! No so bad..
