Once the two bolts are removed, the coupling is pushed aft towards the transmission.
Six tripple square bolts hold the axles to the stub shafts on the transmission. Bagging the CV joints will prevent the grease from getting contaminated. I used a ratcheting strap to fix the transmission to the jack. Random scraps of wood steady the transmission.
4 bellhousing bolts can be removed to fully separate the transaxle from the torque tube.
The reverse light switch and speedo sensor also need to be disconnected.
The transmission is quite heavy. Tilting it aft as it was being lowered is the way I maneuvered it out from under the car.
