Unless you have a lift it's best to take it to a shop. I was quoted a 10 hour job for it. You will have to take off the subframe and support the engine. then take off bell housing and pull down the trans-axle etc to get to it. remember to get the flywheel resurfaced and use an entire clutch kit (throw out bearing, pressure plate, slave cylinder, etc). While you have access, check everything else in there to save yourself the labor of getting in there again.
