hi am using the Hanes manual to take my manual transaxle off and in the book it says to "loosen" the drive axle bolt but why am i only loosening it, it never says to tkake the drive axle out or the bolt off anywhere.


and side note....

...any tips on how to get a transaxle seperated from the block that has been caked on their for 240k+ miles. and i cant remove the elbow piipe for the exhaust that goes under the oil pan. the bolts are rusted and stripped/
