Get a 24mm socket to turn the crank. You need a T55 torx to remove the torque converter from the flex plate. There is a small inspection hole on the bottom of the engine. Rotate engine until you see a torx and remove it, repeat twice more.

You must install it onto the transmission, and properly seat it first. There is a spec for this.

Basically you place it on, and rotate and keep pushing in, eventually it will bottom out with allt he splines properly engauged. If you do not do this correctly, the fluid pump will be crushed.
