Default Need Help with Outback engine removal.

My buddy is trying to remove his motor from his 02' legacy outback with a manual transmission but for some reason he cant separate the engine and tranny, does this tranny have the same process of removal as the WRX?(with removing the hex countersunk plug and clutch fork bar) Thanks for the help.

I've removed the tranny from an 00 legacy, but it was auto, and a WRX, which certainly needs the clutch fork to be freet up. I can tell you that if you have the hex plug and can remove the clutch fork pivot, it will probably help. PB blaster on all the studs also worked miracles for me on two occasions. You can try jacking up the tranny with all the tranny mounts undone and see if that creates a crack on the top between the motor/tranny where you can pound a screwdriver in. Another option is to use the two pry points on the bottom of the tranny- though they aren't very tough. If all else fails, use a big dead blow and a 2x4 to hit the tranny or motor and try to get some separation.

what i just did when pryin the tranny and bl0ck apart was, using a thin knife, put that in the crease where the tranny meets the block. get a hammer and hammer it down. not so far where you can't pull it back up but enough to get some space. then i move to a thicker knife and so on until i can fit my pry bar into the space and pry them open. it's backyard stuff but it worked for me so hopefully this helps.

If it has the newer style clutch assembly like the WRX then you’ll have to pull the clutch fork pivot shaft otherwise you’re working against the force of the pressure-plate sprung fingers as you try to pry the two apart. Just pull the starter and see if the hex cap-bolt is there, if so you’ll have your answer… Another tip is to pull one of the timing cover bolts which is the same thread pattern as the pivot shaft, so it will screw right in and give you something to yank on for removing the pivot shaft
