Default Any tricks to splitting transaxle and motor?

Got the engine/trans assembly out of the vehicle hanging on a hoist. I cannot for the life of me get the two to split apart. Am I missing something other than removing the bolts? ( manual trans)

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: Any tricks to splitting transaxle and motor?

On my 2.2l with manual transmission.

there are 7 bolts that hold the engine and tranny together, The one hidden up under the water pump is hard to see.

Some come in from tranny, some come in from engine.

If all seven are out, may need to pry a little to get them to separate.
