RE: [DML] Pulling Transmission

There are a total of three plates that must be removed before the trans can
come out.  One on the bottom and one on each side.  The driver's side one
has a sensor going to it. In order to remove these plates I found it useful
to loosen the bolt on each engine mount so that the engine can be lifted.
Many do not replace these plates. They are a royal pain... the one on the
driver's side I used 2 extensions, 3 universal joints, and a short 6 point

Subject: [DML] Pulling Transmission

I am in the middle of pulling the manual transmission to replace the clutch
and can not get it out. It feels like it is still attached to the engine. I
have the 4 big bolts, 3 at the starter and 2 on top out (trans mounts and
linkages are also out with a jack under the tranny). I see mention of two
covers on the bottom and driver side but can not find them. Has anyone seen
any pictures describing the process? I am looking at the shop manual and see
no mention of having to remove a plate prior to dropping the transmission.
It does mention a "flywheel protection shield" in step 10 but that is after
lowering the transmission. I can't figure out what I am missing. Has anyone
seen any photos of the process I can look at or have any ideas what I may be
