newbie needs help[ with transmission

hey all, my names ben and right now im removing the manual trans axle from an 01 Focus zx3,my expertise is with MINI and Subaru, so i want to get soome advice instead of just unbolting things.

First off, am i blind or is there no exterior slave cylinder? i see a hydraulic line going into the top of the bell housing, do i just undo that line? also are there any hidden things that i need to do before un bolting it from the engine?

Moved to General Tech. Chat, Welcome to FF!

The slave cyl. IS internal to the bell housing, only the connection & bleeder stick out the top.

Bottom of that unit surrounds the main shaft of the trans., a circular cylinder that acts directly on the clutch though the included bearing.

First bit of advice: Buy a shop manual. Second bit of advice: Read it and familiarize yourself with it before starting to unbolt things. Seriously. It'll save you oodles of time and money.

Other than that, what sailor said.
