It needs to be unbolted from the flywheel. Normally the clutch dic and pressure plate are replaced as a set.

This is a dual lfywheel set up and there are bolts that holde the second flywheel so the inner disc will come out. This has to be done correctly on install or it will screw up the disc.I'm not real sharp on clutches of this type not having done many. It's very important to have the pressure plate reset as it will cause the disc to fail again. I can't find any pics to send to you other than a typical setup as that is all we have.
On¬ the¬ back¬ side¬ of¬ the¬ housing¬ attached¬ to¬ the¬ engine¬ block¬ is¬ a¬ cover.¬ Located¬ on¬ the¬ passasger¬ side.¬ Take¬ the¬ cover¬ off¬ and¬ you¬ will¬ see¬ bolts¬ like¬ a¬ automatic¬ torque
converter¬ bolts.¬ They¬ are¬ eight¬ bolts¬ to¬ unscrew.
The¬ dualmass¬ flywheel¬ will¬ come¬ out¬ from¬ the¬ flexplate.
