have a massive problem thats driven me crazy and would love it if someone could shed some light on it. I am no mechanic but pretty good at reading repair manuals and carrying out the work. I am trying to replace my clutch, but can't get my transaxle off completely, I think this is because the drive shaft is still connected and doesn't have room to come off. Everything else is off and I can see the clutch but it's defiantly getting stuck around the drive shaft area. I have attached pictures of images from the repair manual that will show what I am trying to remove. In picture one, it tells me to remove the shaft with my tire tool which I done but am not sure if it should completely come out from the transaxle or if it should only come out slightly? I have only took it out slightly (about a 1 inch or so) as I don't want to yank incase it's not suppose to come off. Really have know idea where to get from here, hope this is enough information to get me a step ahead.
