Hello,

This is a big job but if you take your time and have a full set of tools you will get it done, here is a guide that shows what you are if for when replacing the clutch along with some diagrams on your car. You will need a floor jack and a buddy to help you get the transmission out. You can get a transmission jack form the auto parts store for free which will make the job easier. I will walk you thought the job if you get stuck.

I have a 96 Nissan Altima and I am replacing the clutch assembly. I only would like to know if I need a special tool to replace the pilot bearing or can I just knock it out and knock it back in. Thanks

Insert the hooked end of a slide hammer behind the bearing and pull it out.
Or use a puller specially design for the removal of pilot bearing.
That tool can also be use to remove the pilot bushing

This will depend on how far the flywheel has been groved by the worn clutch. Sometimes the flywheel can be cut in a similar manner as you would do with a brake drum or rotor, that has been groved due to worn brake shoes or pads. Depending on the price of the flywheel (or the price to cut it) you may want to change it being as you have to remove the flywheel either way. BTW make sure you bring the flywheel to a reputable machine shop.
