SOURCE: how do i remove the
Obtain a lift, disconnect the negative battery terminal and put the vehicle up in the air. Support the transmission with an appropriate jack, disconnect the rear U joint on the drive shaft, unbolt any supports and pull it down and towards the rear. Disconnect the linkage and any wiring and vacuum hoses, making note via a cell phone camera of the way it looked before you took it apart. If there is a support cross member take that out too. Then all the bolts holding the bell housing to the engine and the transmission should pull out and down and you have it.
Seriously if you are going to undertake that type of task it is worth your while to go out and spend 5 whole bucks on a service manual for your make and model burned to a CD, they are on ebay. I have pulled a dozen or so and each one is a bit different, depending on make and model. You did not mention whether yours is 4WD or not, stick shift or not, but that will change things too.
