Drop the tranny. I replaced a clutch on an '89 Ford 4*4. There is a lot less to undo & do-up on a tranny. Just get some help & a few jacks, drop the drive shaft, and then drop the tranny. Line up your new clutch and use 3 or 4 jacks to raise your tranny evenly twist the shaft till she lines up, give her a shove and bang, put your tranny bolts in, drive shaft, you're on the road or mud. FYI, it will take about a day. ~Shade tree

How does a clutch break work?

If a truck has a clutch brake it would only be used when coming to a complete stop. By pushing the clutch peddle completely to the floor you would apply the clutch brake. This stops the clutch disc from spinning making it easier to shift into 1st or reverse gear. Normal shifting while driving you would not need to or want to push the clutch peddle to the floor to activate the clutch brake.

Remove it from the top. But first remove the bracket that holds it in place. That will give you enough clearance to get it out. I'm a retired ASE Master/L-1 Technician. I still keep current with the latest automotive technology.

If its the inner one they are only about £15 each but getting the locking washers off Renault proved to be awkward, change the outers at the same time its easier than struggling to unscrew an old rusted on one.BUT and this is a big BUT, your can only change them by dropping the front subframe first and removing the complete rack. Yes it is a big job but possible to do in a weekend. If its the outer one its fairly simple and by carefully marking and measuring before you remove the old one you wont be to far out when you refit the new one.

How do you replace clutch on 1991 Honda CRX?

changing the clutch is the same as other honda, you take off the nuts on both axle, remaove the shock the camber, reamove the axle, remove the bolt from the tranmission and then remove the tranmission from the egnine, the clutch is attech to the engine. remove the clutch and put in the new one and then put every thing that you take off back that it is should take about 4 hours... Before dropping the transmission you should have disconnected the battery for you will also need to remove the starter, the speedometer as well as the axles. It is a good idea to disconnect the shiftlinkage at this time too. With the car on stands and all above done you can disconnect the trans mount and lower it on a jack before unbolting it from the engine you have the choice to disconnect the front and rear motor mounts and support the motor with a jack. this will angle the motor and make for removing the trans a little bit easier.
