Default EJ205 - Drop the trans checklist

Remove front tires and control arms for access to engine/trans
Remove sway bar, I think its called
Remove downpipe and next section of exhaust
Remove driveshaft
Remove intercooler so I can get to last trans bolt
Disconnect that bracket stabilizer thing that is just a bar that goes from inside the engine bay body to the trans.
Remove 6 bolts from trans/engine (Label them ahead of time due to length differences)
Disconnect shifter and shifter bracket
Remove trans subframe/s holding it up
Put a cradle under the trans

Did I forget anything?

Shake the crap out of it until it uncouples?

Thanks, I just dont want to forget something an mess up my engine or trans. Right now I can NOT get the vertical bolt in the shifter bushing to come out even though it doesnt seem to be under tension. That is the only thing left from my list.

What the heck is keeping the trans from falling right now? I don't understand.

Theres a 12mm nut on top also. Use a tiny box wrench to hold it in place as you loosen the 12mm bolt below.

There are 2 long studs from the engine that the trans sits on. You'd have to slide it out a bit before it'll unhook and drop.

The guide pins, on the block, are a really tight fit and sometimes corrode along withe the 2 long studs. I had to pry the transmission from the block to get it to break loose. Took me about an hour to get it separate. And this was on a lift.
I got the trans swapped in a little under 5 hrs.

It seems the clutch fork may be engaged? I can get the trans to slide a good 3 inches or so and rotate around the center. No instructions I have seen have needed to disengage it. Videos on disengaging it are different trannys, showing different stuff I don't have so i'm asking you guys.

Do you have a pull clutch? There's a pivot pin you need to pull to disengage the fork

Yep! Couldn't see it under the starters... seating position? The aluminum piece that the actual starter sits in. I have the starter out but not the extra piece so I couldn't see it. Thanks!
