I assume you are talking about the bolt that you access through the passenger side wheel well and is located between the tranny and the rear of the engine block.....you will need a long extension and 18mm swivel socket to easily access it....

I never needed a swivel socket.

As many times as I have removed that bolt, I find that many "short" extensions work better than 1 long one.

As long as the power steering pump and oil pressure sensor is removed, you have a straight shot to that bolt which is center of this picture...

This what I use for that bolt 18in extension, 1in swivel extension and a 18mm short socket. Works without fail every time.

OK, I assume you have removed the bolts from the flexplate/converter and the converter is free of the flexplate?....

Then there is the "hidden bolt" you remove from the passenger side......

Then there are the bolts(3) and stud/bolts(2) from the driver'* side...

If these have all been removed, the two should separate.....
