ya its a manual trans.sso I am sliding out the bell housing attached to the trans altogether?Do the axles just pull out right now . I have the car up so the wheels tires were probably a foot off the ground.....If I have to I'll get another jack and lift it more. Do I absolutely have to looseen the k member? Thanks , this seems like a big job right now, but mostly cause of the fear of the unknown.

you would be best off to go ahead and pull the shifter out so as not to damage anything when you're yanking it out. it would have been alot easier for you to get it out by pulling the motor/tranny both out at the same time thru the hood with a cherry picker and then separate them. you think it was a mother getting those bolts off? wait till you try to put them back in.

Since you have an svt you are in for a fun time. But you need to unbolt the subframe and let it swing back, drain the fluid, use a motor hoist to support the motor because you are taking off two of the three mounts. Really if you havent ever done a front wheel drive trans I would not recommend doing an svt. It is def not easy esp on the ground.
