I have already taken all the transmission bolts out, starter motor is out, cv's are out disconnected, everything all the lines are out of the way but it still won't come out?

I have the car up on a proper hoist

Also is a tension wrench necessary to complete the job?

What are the torque settings?
Do you

Undo the bolts on the torque converter and hope you haven'tscrewed up the oil pump. Make sure the starter is out and you have the engine supported otherwise it's gonna try to come with trans and probably fallout. You should really get a manual for this to take this out because they recommend unhooking a lot of stuff prior to removal. Inluding axles and wheel spindle on drivers side.

Manual cars don't have torque converters thanks any way mate. I have it out now so if anyone has any further advice for me before I finish the job, mainly the torque settings would appreciate it.

That's all good mate. It's a manual v6. I got it out 3rd day mind you, so now I'm attaching the new clutch, hoping everything goes back together OK.

Am I going to need the torque setting do you know? Or just do it nice and tight?

If you have a torque wrench then by all means use it if not nice an dtight will do just not overtight. To break the bolts. Case to engine mounts 63-67 Nm or46-49 ft lbs. Here is install instructions.
Insert the snap ring pliers under the wave washer to release the bearing.
Replace the clutch components as necessary by following the steps in the appropriate Shop Manuals.
NOTE:Do not attach the new release bearing to the clutch cover.

Install the release bearing on the fork as shown. See Fig. 7.
Fig. 7: Installing Release Bearing on Fork
Attach the clutch cover without the release bearing to the flywheel while the clutch disc is aligned using the clutch disc guide tool (refer to the appropriate Shop Manuals for the clutch disc guide tool part number).
Attach the transaxle assembly to the engine assembly.
NOTE:Make sure not to apply any side loads to the clutch components.

Install the release lever on the release fork shaft by aligning notches (release lever attaches only one way on the shaft).
After completing step 15, pull the release lever to engage the release bearing into the clutch cover fingers. If there is a click sound, the release bearing and the clutch cover are aligned correctly. If the assembly does not click and snap into place, the release bearing and the clutch cover are not aligned correctly. Repeat steps 13, 14 and 15.
NOTE:Do not apply excessive force on the release lever to engage the release bearing.

Reconnect all removed components in the reverse order of removal.
Add the specified amount and type of oil into the filler hole (refer to the applicable Shop Manuals

When removing transmission, Make sure to disconect the clutch fork arm completely, 14mm nut.

Remove completely or the trans will not release from the engine.

This is a pull cluthch type assembly.
Tighten clutch cover bolts to 11-15 ft lbs or 15-22Nm
Tighten the bolts by one or two turns at a time, in succession, to avoid bending the cover flange
tighten diagonally

Thanks for your detailed reply,

The throw out clutch/ fork bearing, I have already attached to the clutch and greased all the appropriate splines. (That was through the advice of a local mechanic) have torqued up the bolts and have tried to align the clutch fork into the bearing with no success. Is it possible to do it this way or will I need to undo it all and is it even possible to undo once it's clicked into place.

Sounds like the clutch disc wasn't aligned properly there should be a plastic spline that you can get for about $5 to align it then tighten the pressure plate you'll have to loosen the plate again then the trans should go right in unless there is a trans bearing or bent spline but that is almost impossible to do

Sorry I don't think I explained myself properly, I need to know if it is possible to remove the throw out bearing from the clutch plate that is bolted to the flywheel that is bolted to the engine. So that means its been clicked into place but the clutch fork is still in the bell housing part and I'm having big dramas trying to get them to marry up. Is there any way I can keep going this way and get the fork to go in while its this way. I can't seem to get it to go in.
If not is there a way to remove the bearing and put it back on the way you suggested, because that seems the best way but I had someone else helping who went ahead and attached it. I have tried to take that bearing out of the clutch I replaced with no luck at all so I'm hoping the whole thing isn't stuffed.
If neither any other ideas?

Hey thanks so much for your help I hopefully have just one last question and that is it it possible to undo the bolt from the throw out bearing to the clutch plate because the guy helping me has attached it and clicked it all into place. I have been trying to undo it on the old one to see how to do it but it won't budge. Any idea if there is a special tool or something for me to undo it so I can do it the right way? Thanks heaps

That's the same question I answered previously it has to be put on with the transmission prior to putting trans to engine.

Thanks I understand that, what I'm asking is
now that the bearing has already been attached to the engine, is it possible to undo it to do it the right way, without breaking it. Its already clicked into place and seems impossible. I have also tried as a practice to do it with the old one with no luck, any ideas?
