I just wanted to chime in that as far as I recall, if one removes the 
"engine-transmission damper" bracket thing (4 bolts), you can see a big 
chunk of the front of the flywheel to work on it.  Not sure if that 
applies to all 5-pot setups, or if it allows replacing these pins 
easily, but it sure would be easier than removing the transmission.

You have to remove this bracket thing to take the trans. off anyway, so 
nothing to lose by trying...
