Hi there,

On these you have to remove the shift fork because the throw out bearing is snapped into the pressure plate. Removing the bolt from the top of the shift lever where it goes into the bell housing and taking it off the cable should allow for it to move freely, then you should be able to separate the engine and transmission.

Give it a try and let me know.
