So I've been trying to install this clutch from sunup til sundown for 3 days now, everytime i start to get rolling there's a problem :confused: I.E. Impact wont fit.. Bolts snapping off, Not enough clearance to get bellhousing far enough out of the way...Running to the store every hour to get new bolts, snap-rings, tools... . Pain in the ***!! :mad: Main problem is I'm doing it myself (An extra set of hands would have been GREAT!) I just got the flywheel off (Took alot of time there , couldn't keep it from turning while I put pressure on the bolts to break em loose). This is the worst case of a damaged clutch I've ever seen..WOW!!:eek: Pic's coming up soon.

Um, wow. That's a wee bit worn.

x3 on the flexible hose. At AutoZone, they have them labeled as "transmission fill hoses".

Was there no way to drop the transmission completely out of the car?

its tough enough to get space to move it back with the subframe slightly dropped. getting it out completely blows

If you aren't replacing the flywheel, you should get it resurfaced.
You mean I have to tear it apart again!!!??? I don't think I like you now! :kick:

JK... I put in a Lightweight Flywheel. All is new, all is good.. Just have to replace my battery now.. For some reason it wont hold a charge anymore :confused: (Maybe having hazards on til it died. )

if you have apucked clutch that is normal and as for the battery, are you positive you reattached all the grounds when you put it back together?
