I'm doing some work my 2002 996 C2 with Tiptronic auto trans. I have a repair manual from a '99 which has been close enough so far, but I've reached an impass. I was able to get the conjoined engine and tranny out, separate the engine from the transmission, and remove the extra coupler between the engine and tranny. What I can't figure out is how to remove the torque converter from the engine shaft?

Can anyone provide some guidance or post the correct repair manual instructions/diagrams to help me get the torque converter removed?

I received some tips from others and the process is to remove the starter motor and then rotate torque converter until you can see 2 bolt heads through the oriface that held the starter. Remove the bolts, then rotate 120 degrees, remove 2 bolts, rotate another 120 and remove the last 2 bolts. This allows the torque converter to be removed from the flywheel. The flywheel then has a handful of bolts holding it onto the engine shaft.

Problem solved!
