1. Start by removing the shifter boot and knob from inside the car. Disconnect the clutch cable from the fork. Remove the reverse-light harness, the cruise-control harness (if applicable), and the exhaust, then drop the driveshaft. While not shown in this shot, we used a transmission jack before removing the crossmember to slowly lower the transmission without ripping the motor mounts. This gave us better access to the two upper bolts going into the bellhousing.
