Disconnecting zf5 ????

I'm pulling my engine and I pulled all te bell housing bolts out and figured the engine would just slip off. Well the fly wheel is seems to be coming out of the bell housing. Is this supposed to happen. How should I go about sliding the tranny backwards until its disconnected?

Not sure what you mean by "coming out". Is the flywheel/clutch staying on the engine as you pull it away from the tranny?

Yeah that's exactly what's happening

The flywheel and clutch are connected to the engine, so that they are staying with the engine is totally normal. If you want to back the tranny some, you will need to remove the rear driveshaft, remove the shifter, remove the crossmember and tranny mount, etc. Cheers!

Could I not just leave the crossmember connected to the tranny and disconnect everything else and just slide it back while the crossmember rests on the frame. I took the bolts out that hold it too the frame

Also to remove the shifter do I do that from the cab or underneath?

In cab. Remove the 4 phillips head screws holding the base to the floor. Pull the bottom of the boot up and remove the 2 torx head bolts that connect the lever to the shift stub. Remove the 4 bolts holding the shifter stub retaining plate. CAREFULLY lift the shift stub out, making sure the plastic blocks on either side of the stub below the plate don't fall into the shift tower hole. Place a clean rag in the shift tower hole. Some service manuals say to just remove the shift lever, but experience has taught me the stub will hang up on the hole in the floor pan, making removal difficult and frustrating.

Okay thanks. I will do this tomorrow. How far back do I need to move the tranny so it's fully disconnected ?
