Yep, i always take mine out the top with the box on it, you will need a hoist or crane really though.

Gotta do mine over the next week or so & if i remember i'm going to do a step by step with piccies :)

You can also drop it on the subframe but thats an arse if you ask me.

You can also leave the box in & get the lump out on it's own, but again it's fiddly, or you can drop the gearbox side of the subframe & loosen the drivers side & wiggle the box out that way, i've not done it like that so i can't say how easy it is.
You will need to drain the gearbox of oil before you remove the driveshaft though & don't get any on you, it feckin stinks ;)

i really do hope he doesnt try and just move the box the other half he did one like that thinking it  was going to be easier well he decided that after doing it that way he be a lot easier taking the engine and box out and doing it on a bench or ground then you can line the box back up with the clutch perfectly instead of the muck about way jiggle wiggle and so on

Yep, exactly so, it's the same with leaving the box in, a right pain getting everything to line up ok....
