I had a timing belt broke, pulled head in car, after seeing damage got a replacement engine from a salvage yard. 2000 GLX 1.8T 5 speed. I can not get the engine to seperate from the transmission inside the car. I have the room to remove without pulling as an assembly, All bolts are out, I have them sitting about almost an inch apart but can not seperate, can not see what is holding them together. I have the Bentley manual, and still do not see what I am missing. I have done a number of engine/tranny swaps but never on a new beetle, not sure what I am missing here. What could be holding it together.
