To start, remove the drive shaft from the rear end.( there should be four bolts holding it on). Remove the shifter completely. Next, remove all of the bolts from the bell housing that fasten the tranny to the rear of the engine.(you will need to remove the starter and oil filter to complete this). Then, place a jackstand underneath the transmission and remove the crossmember with the transmission mount. In most cases, the collector pipe for the exhaust will need to be unbolted from the headers. Before removing the tranny, make sure all wires and clutch connections are removed. At this point, you should be able to drop your transmission. - good luck, and be prepared to spend a few hours doing this.

To change an automatic galant to a 5-speed, you need a Computer for the Manual transmission of that year, and an engine.

The fluid is drained by removing the transmission pan.

To replace the clutch you must separate the engine and transmission. For a front wheel drive vehicle, separating the engine and transmission can only be accomplished by removing the engine.

I did it, just supported transmission and changed engine just like any other car.

In some cars, you can get the rear bearing by dropping the transmission. For the rest, no.
