Tips for a DIYer Clutch replacement

Recommended Posts

I have a new clutch kit from JAE sitting on the bench and a week off next week... so going to tackle it.

any tips? I searched the forums but didn't find any real detail. LEW has a pictoral - > http://www.lotusespritworld.com/EGuides/EModifications/clutch.html

and the manual seems a bit sparse.

Thanx! I used the LEW pics to dig in... the car sits with the old clutch and pressure plate out.

the old clutch is bare ....

Now I just have to pull the old pilot bearing out and I'll start reassembling....

since my transmission is still in the car and I only have a 6" wide gap to work through - no room for a slide hammer. I found the tool to use, and luckly Advance Auto has it in the tool loaner program...
