Separating them, or pulling the whole thing out together? If you're taking the motor out, it's easier to take them apart out of the car. There are 5 17mm bolts, 4 on the tranny side and one on the back by the diff, 2 14mm bolts that hold the starter on, and a couple of little (12 or 14?) that hold the flywheel plate to the tranny.
on a standard shift crx I find it is ALOT easier ( at least for me) to pull the engine and transmission and seperate them out of the car. . . .there is not alot of wiggling room to fiddle with the input shaft with out the motor hitting on the drivers side frame rail. . . . . take them both out and go from there. . . plus you get a nice chance to really clean up the whole underhood compartment when they both are out. .
Ummm...that last comment has me worried about some peoples wrenching habits.
I find it easier to jack the body up and drop the motor/trans asy out on a jack.
FYI I wouldn't sawzall anything on a car unless your cutting body panels.
