Default 03 wrx 5mt removal?

ok so before i yank out my hair, and yes i have read the writeup on trans removal for the car..... I am curious as to if the clutch fork pin needs to be removed to pull the trans? being that i am swapping trans out anyways and will be swapping all accessories from the current trans to the new one (ie. clutch fork, slave, and sensors) could one just leave the fork and pin attached to current trans upon removal..........i have everything pulled completely but cant seem to get trans pulled from the engine? so before i start yanking and using pry bars id like to know if the fork pin needs to be pulled in order to remove trans or if it can stay on?

I usually do Subaru push clutches, but I believe, yes, you need to pull the fork pin so you can disengage the fork from the ToB.

Yeah remove the pin and hold the fork up while separating the engine and transmission. Remove the big allen head cap, then use a bolt from the timing cover to thread into the clutch fork pivot pin to pull it.

You can also use a long pick or flathead screwdriver to pop the TOB off the clutch without removing the pin but it can be a little tricky and annoying to do sometimes.

honestly its a pretty straight forward swap over....aside from the obvious i did find that the knuckles do not have to come apart to move the cv axles out of the way just slide them back nor does the shifter need to be taken apart from interior of the car just pop the linkages......also use a block of wood to angle the engine back for easy removal and install i did the trans by myself all in all took maybe 4 hours start to finish, i lined up the trans on the lower bolts set the TOB at 3 and 9 o clock went up top stuck the fork in then slid the DS into trans rotated to get splines right into the engine and shoved her on in there....real straight forward trans swap minus the clutch fork pin ( never done a pull type before ) oh and dont be me and install starter before the slave lol
