It's so easy!
Just remove the four UNCscrews (holding the support rubbers to the g'box)
from the end of the gearbox.
Then remove the entire crossmember, complete with the rubbers,
rubber bushing and steel pin, etc. from the car.
Before you do that, however you have to support the g"box with a block of wood

of the crossmember.
Clean all parts and assemble the crossmember again.
