How many bolts in the tranny to engine mount!?

Yes it's question number one million on this tranny drop and possibly the last! How many bolts are connecting the tranny to the engine.. It feels like there are some bolts way up above which seem like that will be just short of impossible to get to. (Of course nothing is impossible)

Any siggesstions on how to get to them and how many I'm look at (So I know when I can begin to push the tranny out)

I did remove the starter, another thing Hayne's fails to mention.

Thanks for any input!!

8 bolts all together if you count the ones on the bottom that just hold the inspection cover on.

To get to the top bolts you can lower the engine/tranny down and then reach from the rear over the tranny with a long entension to remove the top bolts.

They are an inverted torx type head. You can sometimes use a 6 point socket
to get them out (unless you have the special socket for them.)

Hmmm the only inverted heads I had were on the starter.. I think I've got all the bolts out, BUT now the tranny won't seem to budge although it has shifted a little..

I hops it's not resting on the shaft.. I've got a jack under it but I'm a little nervous about trying to back it off alone..

Did you remove the 2 small bolts on the top? They are external torx bolts size E12.
Only easy way to get them is like kloppk said.

A Big Hammer Can Fix Anything....

Hmmm.. I did not find them but will look again.. I have 8 large 18mm bolts out and the tranny has moved a little bit..

Should the tranny seperate from the engine pretty easily?

The only 2 small E12 bolts on my AX5 were the starter bolts...

I used a large screw driver to pry things apart. You can also use a rubber mallet to knock things loose. Once it starts, it seperates pretty quick. My next obstacle is clearing the downpipe.

Oh good, I'm not insane.

It looks like I've got all the bolts.. I'm using a regular floor jack on the tranny and I've even strapped it to the jack but I'm still affraid it's going to fall, or break the shaft, etc.. I'm a newb to this so I'm nervous.

Well I finally got the transmission out..

Note to Haynes, it helps to take the inspecion plate off... SMACK.. Sat there for an hour jimmying the tranny back and forth and it occured to me then that the plate was blocking the tranny from moving out.. 10 mins later it was out.. Bleh..
