Take the little plate off the bottom of the tranny that guards the flex plate and TC, and start taking the bolts out that hold the flex plate to the TC... keep turning it so you can reach them all. Then proceed to take the tranny out and the TC will come out with it...

Also, you can do it by pryng out the black rubber/plastic cover that is located at the top right, rear of the engine. Once you take out this plastic piece, you can locate each bolt (by turning the tranny) that holds the TC to the flywheel at the rear of the engine. I believe there are six bolts. Once you locate these bolts, use socket wrench 12MM to take them out, after which you should then be able to separate the tranny from the engine. (I assume you have taken out the four main bolts that hold the tranny housing to the back of the engine.)
