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

yes you can remove the fan clutch without removing the rad. it is tight but it can be done. it is easier with the Rad removed

You can either pull the engine out, or drop the sub-frame. I understand that dropping it is easier.

It is by all means better, and easier to change the clutch & pressure plate by pulling the transmission. Just remember to "block up your engine" before pulling the transmission.

Turn the fan clutch counterclockwise and use a pulley wrench to keep the pulley from turning. An air hammer will make it easier to get off.

It's easier, faster, and more often than not, cheaper to replace the entire compressor.

You can change it without removing gas tank But it is tucked under the gas tank and is much easier to replace once the tank is dropped..

It is easier to reverse a physical change.

This is no easy task, I suggest you get a service manual. It involves removing the battery, starter, transaxle support brackets, power distribution center, axle shafts, and the transaxle. Might be easier to just remove the engine.

It would be easier to buy a different car. You would need to change the trans, install a wiring harness for a manual, a computer for a manual, cut an extra hole in the firewall for the clutch master cylinder, mount the clutch pedal ( would have to make new brackets ), change the center console to a manual shifter, route the manuals shift cables.......

Auto clutch means a torque converter has two pedal drive and brake system so you have a brake pedal and accelerator that auto changes gears automatically. It makes it easier to drive.

Yes, you sure can. Decide which is easier, removing the bed or the fuel tank.

You can change your spark plugs by locating the old ones and removing them. You can insert the new ones by locating the spark plug hole and then threading them in. It is easier if you use a socket wrench to install them.

Nope. Physical changes are easier to reverse.

If its the inner one they are only about ยฃ15 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.

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.

no, you don't have to but it makes it a whole lot easier

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.

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.

it change sport to make it easier.

Remove the cradle mounts on the top front of the engine and rock the engine forward. Removing the coil pack makes access easier too.

easier to bring it in to a fast change place of your choice... almost cheaper and easier to let them do it

The driveshaft is removed to replace the clutch by unbolting the u-joints and retaining caps on each end of the drive shaft. The shaft can then be collapsed slightly to allow for easier removal.
