It is not an hard job and can easily be done in less than a day by an amatuer. But if you have to ask how you need to get the manual for the car as there are quite a number of steps.
I agree that you should have a manual close by for reference, but in its absence, here's the procedure I wrote down last time I changed my clutch.
Jack up the front of the car and support with jackstands
Drain the radiator
Drain the transaxle
Remove the following from above:
battery and battery tray
air filter assembly
3 hoses attached to water pipe (don't lose the clamps)
water pipe - 10mm - (one bolt is almost hidden up top)
negative ground on transaxle - 12mm
various wiring connections
starter - 12mm - 2 bolts (don't lose the shim)
Remove the following from below:
shifter lever & support rod from transaxle - 12mm & 14mm
left (driver) A-arm bolt
use prybar to force A-arm down so wheel pulls away (don't destroy your ball joint boot)
prybar half-axle out of transaxle (you'll feel it pop, then slide out)
Support the engine - jackstand + wood blocks work (don't damage the oil pan)
Support the transaxle with jack
Remove flywheel cover plate between engine and bell housing - 12mm
Remove transaxle-to-engine bolts - 14mm
Remove transaxle mount (to frame) bolts - 14mm
Separate transaxle from engine
prybar is ok, but don't force too hard
if they don't come apart easily, adjust the angle using the jack
** At any time after separation, handling the clutch lever may cause the throwout bearing to jump out
Use prybar to 'pop' passenger half-axle from transaxle
Lower transaxle out of the way
Remove clutch pressure plate and disc - 12mm
Remove flywheel - easiest to counter the rotation with a socket on the opposite side of engine (nut inside center pulley)
Have the flywheel resurfaced - about $40 at any reputable machine shop
** This is important if flywheel has discolored "hot spots", failure to do so may cause your new clutch to get chattery and fail early
The new clutch kit will come with a pilot bearing (center of flywheel) and a throwout bearing (inside transaxle on shaft).
If you ask nicely, your machinist may replace the pilot bearing for you while he's got the flywheel
Cam timing incorrect.
in the alternator
The crank bolt is right thread on a 96 geo metro. bob.
I know mine is under the hood and I have a 97 geo metro so you may want to start there.
yes, however the pcm for the '96 expects signals from 2 O2 sensors. unless you replace the computer too, it should not be a problem
It is in the diistributor.
At least fot the 96 its a 6 and one half inch speaker.
Remove the cables from the starter. Remove the three retaining bolts from the starter. The starter will come out. Reverse the process to install the new starter.
Sometimes you can remove the back seat and access it that way.
Yes, just make sure the screws line up. Some model variations may not line up correctly.
you are so dumb
Remove the inside door panel. Remove the window retaining clips. The window will slide out. Reverse the process to install the new window.
89-94 are the same and 96-97 are the other style. 95 is a split year (the vin # of the change is available by asking a parts store for 95 parts. Late 95 interchanges. Basically if it looks like it fits it does.
Professionally, it will cost around $2,000 to replace a broken shifter and clutch in a 96' Chevy Beretta. Just the replacement clutch and shifter will end up costing you around $800.00.
Remove the negative battery cable for 30 seconds. This works on pre '96 cars.
Cost of clutch and labor will be in the neighborhood of $500.00
try looking on the top of fuse block on left side under dash
front corner of fuel tank near the driver's rear wheel.
That depends on whether you're lining up 2 timing belt pulleys to the timing marks or lining up water pump/alternator/crankcase pulleys Mr Geo Metro firstname.lastname@example.org
The front bar is a direct fit but the rear bar off a 96 will only mount to the control arms. You will have to fab up plates to mount the chassis attachment pionts.
Had the same problem with my 96 Geo Metro........ I replaced the catalytic converter....... Real easy car to work on. Part was about $100 from www.rockauto.com heat up the bolts with some map gas and the bolts will come off
