Removing gear selector..
Disconnect connector plugs, trim panel etc..
Pull up on the shift knob to remove, and to honest it's not as bad as everyone makes it out to be.
There are 3 torx bolts holding the assembly in place. You also have to loosen the parking lock cable I believe it is.
Now back under the car looking at the front of the transmission you will see this little rubber plug called an access plug. Remove this and you can slightly see the torque converter. There are 3 bolts bolting the flywheel to the torque converter. In order to visually see them you have to turn the crankshaft in order to get them visibly in the access hole. Once you see them use your socket, I believe it was a 17mm or 19mm.
