No the actual gearbox in the engine bay. Connecting to the engine. All botls are off but the gearbox isnt pulling out or budging from its spot gets about 5mm off around the the thing and doesnt bugde. I wanna know if I've missed a bolt or something.

You're not alone Daniel, I couldn't find anything either, except at: .....that is a Mitsubishi owners website that has all kinds of information, including service records, service manuals, how~to videos on repair, and more... but it wouldn't let me in without a VIN# and registered owners name.

Insert a flat blade screwdriver in both top and bottom access holes in the clutch housing, between the release bearing and the diaphragm spring. Simultaneously turn both screwdrivers through 90 to disengage the release bearing.
