Post torque tube removal

How do you get the torque tube to let go of the flex plate? I have the trans out the bolts that attach the torque tube to the bellhousing off and the bolt out of the clamp inside the bell housing. It's a '78 924 auto. Thanks.

Should just pull out. Did you put a block of wood between the torque tube and the torsion bar? If you are just letting it rest on the torsion bar it puts pressure on the splines and it won't slip out easy. It needs to be level, also have someone push the clutch in when you extract it, helps to releive the pressure on the disc when you pull the tube out.

No I didn't place a piece of wood on the torsion bar the haynes manual didn't have any info on removing the torque tube for an auto.

It's an auto so there no clutch.
