It pulls straight out. Check the FSM for instructions on removal/installation.

I can tell you from experience, you want to make SURE you put it back in correctly, had to go find another tranny after putting mine in wrong, it broke the keys off the oil pump.

Hit me up sometime if you need specifics, but once you unbolt the torque converter from the flexplate, separate the tranny from the block, you just grab and pull straight off, really simple.

ROb is right, pulls straight out. when you put it back in make sure you feel it drop 3 times. put your palm on the center and rotate it back and forth until it drops. you are lining up the oil pump shaft, the inside of the torque converter and the outside of the converter(the splines you see) oh yea, replace the seal in the trans housing as well.
