Changing clutch - OMG for real! Not easy!
Well, I wasn't too scared to attempt this "big" job. I've done a bunch of work on cars, and I've done clutches on easier rear wheel drive cars. But this is quite a step up, especially since the subframe has to come down.
Done so far: Airbox and some tubes out. Covers underneath front out, wheelwells also out coolant drained, steering box disconnected, and a few more things already done.
Anyways, a couple of hiccups. I'm hoping someone can check the particular WIS section and shed some light.
1. Steering u-joint to steering box connection. I removed the bolt that 'squeezes' the aluminum 'block' that goes on the steering box splined shaft, but it seems to be seized on (aluminum block, steel shaft). Just wanna make sure nothing else is holding it on.
2. The fuel line to the engine uses a crimped on clamp. Wondering if the WIS shows to remove and replace these, or whether it shows to disconnect the fuel line further back.
3. Transmission cable connections at tranny. Not sure how these connect (disconnect) from shift mechanism.
That's it for now as far as questions.
