hi samsagaz,

you seem to have asked the question from two different ways there;

In your first post you say;

"know if it is possible in this car to remove the engine without first removing the gearbox?"

and in your second;

"know if is possible to remove just the engine from top and without the gearbox?"

but anyway- I would think the entire unit; gearbox & engine will come out as one. You'd have to back it into the gearbox-side wheel arch, and then come up at an angle, from the belts side of the engine.
For clutch changes; it must be possible to separate the two in the bay; but it depends on what you want to do? Do you NEED the gearbox off the block?

I personally, would go for removing the whole unit (gearbox & engine) as one; as trying to reach all the bolts and undo them, and separate the two parts in the car could be very difficult.
