a few things, the tranny is gonna be a little harder to get on then it is to get off, but either way your gonna have to shake/wiggle the crap outta it in order for it to even move, and then once it comes out your gonna have a big thing come flying down so make sure your not under it, and make sure you have like a jack stand or something under it that will support it

I'm gonna sacrifice one of my jacks and weld up a tray & harness to it in order to pull out the tranny safely. Not too worried about anything; I'm just gonna take it step by step. The only thing that concerns me is the two top most bolts on the tranny, how to reach them. xsperf- did you come in from the engine bay with the ratchet extensions for those bolts?
nope, i got a 2ft extention and put the ratchet in from over the tranny, on the driveshaft/guibo side and feed it all the way through...
That's right . . the bolt heads are on the tranny side

Unfortunately, yes There was a very short lived thread a couple weeks back. I can hear a faint scraping noise whenever I depress the clutch pedal, indicating that the throwout bearing is on its way out. And then it would just be dumb not to replace the clutch disc, pressure plate & pilot bearing while I have the tranny off, so I might as well make a fiasco out of it.
