It's really easy man.. What they are talking about is the Throw out fork wrist pin.. After you take off TMIC, Starter, and Clutch cylinder there is a hex head cap on the upper driver-side bell housing. What you have to do is remove this cap with an Allen wrench then you do as you said, thread a 10mm bolt into the throw out bearing wrist pin so you can use the bolt as a handle to pull it out.. This will disconnect the throw out fork from the trans so you can separate the trans from the motor.. You have to do this because the throw out bearing is connected to the clutch and the fork is connected to the bearing so something has to be disconnected...


EDIT.. Made some pictures..

Here is the location, under the starter..

Granted this is disassembled with not fork or shaft, but you should be able to figure it out now..

Here is an existing "How To" of sorts that I already posted..
Installing new clutch this weekend. Any pointers?

It's really not that hard kh15.. I can do the entire swap in about 6 hours.. That's out and in again.. Just takes a couple times to find the short cuts and what not..

VD5505: Do you have a service manual? I have a CD version if you need one I'll send you a copy for TQ specs and what not.. Just PM me an addie..

It's not a problem, I'm here to help as much as I can.. This is something that I know a lot about, I've been down this road a couple times.. LOL..

Online service manuals.. http://ken-gilbert.com/wrx/impreza_manuals.htm

Edit: I almost forgot to give you MAJOR hint.. When putting things back together put the Throw out bearing snap ring in the correct place.. Upon reassembly it should be placed on the motor / flywheel side of the clutch pressure plate. There are (4) little tabs that hold it in place.. The throw out bearing itself goes on the transmission input shaft and the throw out fork goes back in place along with the wrist pin.. When you bolt the trans back onto the motor push the top of the fork towards the back of the car.. You should feel it "Click" into place and you should not be able to push the top of the fork back forward again easily.. If you can something is not right.. That little snap ring is the case of a lot of frustration for myself and many others..
