TRANSMISSION REMOVAL (REPEAT)

Hyundai Other

I have a 1996 Hyundai Elantra wagon with 103000 miles on the odometer. It has a 1.8 liter engine and a manual transmission. The clutch is slipping and needs to be replaced. I elected to try the job myself. All went as well as could be expected up to the point where I had completely unfastened the transmission from the engine and the half axles. At this point, I couldn't seperate the units. They will pull apart an inch or two, then they insist on snapping back togather. I assume the driveshaft is stuck in the clutchplate, and that if I could get the parts aligned perfectly, they would seperate easily. I am supporting the transmission on a platform bolted to a floor jack. I would appreciate any ideas on how to get the units aligned. I am running out of things to try.

Please help ! !

Thanks

P.S. I donated before I lost my first letter.

Follow instructions below and put some elbow to it-they get stubborn to disengage at times.

Make sure you replace the seal otherwise its gonna leak-trust me BTDT wishing the old seal will work-but no luck

Sounds like the tranny input shaft is binding on the pilot bearing that's preventing it from disengaging.

Try this put it in 1st gear and turn the tranny 360 deg. At the same time be pulling out or with the help of a pry bar.
