hi all, i am trying to replace the tranny on my v6 vr commy & have run into a problem. I cant get the torque convertor housing cover off, i have removed all the bolts i can see & it seems loose but it doesn't have the clearance to come off. My question is what else do i have to remove?

Have you taken the starter motor out?

Unless the cover has a slot in it where the starter bolts to it, then it has to come out.

what about the brackets either side of the cover? they go from the trans to the engine block, at least one of them will have to come off to remove the cover, and well, both if you plan on removing the transmission.

can't see any brackets, the cover looks like a 1 piece casting with 4 x 15mm bolts "cover to auto" & 6 x 13mm nuts on studs " cover to engine". the studs on the engine seem to be stopping the cover from coming off.

You might have to pull the studs out then. Lock two nuts together on the thread then undo them.
