Have you turned the flexiplate into a better position to get better access to the bolts.Try using a open end spanner or a ring spanner instead of a socket

Removing torque converter bolts on a 2008 passat VW

I have no experience of this model but there is usually a cover or plug that can be removed to expose a potion of the engine side of the flexplate. The engine is turned slowly by hand to bring each torque converter bolt into view in turn.

Torque converter bolt heads are usually forged with a flange and are fairly shallow so an exceptionally good-fitting socket is advised. The bolts are usually adhesive coated and will remain tight to unscrew until almost the last thread.
Best practice is to renew adhesive coated bolts but a few spots of nutlock would serve.

Adhesive coated bolts are date coded and have a shelf life of only 2 years.

I am installing an m52 engine from a 1996 bmw 328i into a 1998 bmw 528i, but the torque converter and flywheel lock up when I tighten the outer engine to trans bolts. If I loosen the bolts, they move...

Hi! If, as you say, your torque converter is fully engaged, then the only thing I can think is that the unit doesn't match! It may be that the dimensions between the two are different - meaning that when you try to fully tighten the bolts, the 1st motion shaft bottoms out in the flywheel support bush (or similar). Might be worth speaking with a main BMW dealership to get advice/info?

Im takeing out my motor out of a 96 jimmy and i dont know how to take out mty tranmission

Remove the driveshaft, or both if 4x4. Remove the starter and if automatic remove the inspection cover by the starter and unbolt the torque converter. Don,t lose these bolts, they are special order only from the dealer. Unhook your linkage and wiring. Put a jack under the trans with a block of wood between it and the pan. Unbolt the transmission crossmember from the frame and the trans from the engine.Remove the crossmember and slide the transmission back and lower the jack. Hope this helps.

Must install converter into tranny first. Then bolt torque converter to flywheel after you slide it into place. Make sure converter slips into will need to turn it several times untill it fits into grrove inside tranny.:)

Torque converter removal

is it front wheel or rear? if front you have to take down the motor and trans together by unbolting the 4-6 very large bolts and drop the entire front assembly.
if rear drive disconnect the drive shaft and unbolt the crossmember get a trans jack or one with wheels that work and unbolt trans from motor.
remember to SPIN the torque con when reinstalling.

96 Chezy Blazer Manual Transmission Removal

Did you remove the transmission lines too? did you remove the linkage from the gear selector to the transmission? And last. Did you remove the plate near the bell housing? If you remove that plate you'll see the flywheel teeth that the starter engages to to spin the engine over.. And you'll see bolts holding the torque converter to the flywheel. You need to remove one bolt.... Turn the engine over by hand at the crankshaft with a ratchet until the next bolt is in a position to remove. Remove it and continue till all the bolts are off.... Then try to remove the transmission... You absolutely have to unbolt the torque converter or it won't pull out. The space to get those bolts out will be fairly tight.. A ratchet wrench would be the fastest. A regular ratchet might fit.. But if it doesn't a box end wrench will work.
