How to take out manual transmission: 2003 Mustang GT

I've got to take my tranny out and fix her. Whats the best way to do this? Take the engine out, then tranny from top? OR pull the tranny out from the bottom?

I think I pulled the shifter forks out. My tranny only goes in 1st, 3rd, and 5th, while 2nd, 4th, and reverse do nothing.

Pull the trans from the bottom, it's a lot less hassle.

It's not a terribly difficult job, as long as you can get the car pretty high up in the air. The worst part is unbolting the exhaust.

The exhaust is the worst part, spray the nuts at the manifolds with PB Blaster and let soak, and a medium deep well 15mm 6 point socket with a universal joint will work good on the outer nut above the starter, the regular deep well was too long and wouldnt bite it so I could break it loose, I had to heat mine up with acetalyn and oxygen to get it off, be sure to set aside and not damage the gasket when it goes back together, I'm actually putting in a fidanza 12 pound flywheel, and just get to work on it when time permits. take your time, the starter is also the next hard job after the exhaust, it has 3 bolts, hope this helps
