The engine and transmission need to be separated to accomplish this task.I would recommend that you have a shop do it. If you think you can handle it have someone there to help you. Rent a tranny jack, it is money well spent. Once the tranny is out of the way the flexplate is an easy operation just make sure that you torque the bolts to proper specs. As you are already there you might as well replace the front pump seal in the transmission. You will need more than just a basic idea on how to do this and as always safety first, transmissions are heavy and can easily crush you if the proper tools are not used correctly.

I've done these with the engine and transmission mounted and can say, you are better off having wrench clearance to have a little wiggle room~...it can be done with the tranny mounted yet, but difficult~
