Hi armyguy21,

Here are the replacement procedures.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

CLUTCH ASSEMBLY

Removal
1. Place the shift lever in Neutral and release steering lock. Remove battery ground cable and disconnect starter wiring. Disconnect back-up light switch. Remove clip securing speedometer cable and disengage assembly from transaxle.

Disconnect clutch cable from release arm. Remove upper transaxle mounting bolts. Loosen spindle nut and raise vehicle. Drain transaxle oil. Remove front wheel and spindle nut. Securely position floor jack under control arm. Raise vehicle enough to take load off ball joint.

Separate ball joint from steering knuckle. Slowly lower control arm and remove jack. Pull hub outward to disengage drive shaft. Using pry bar, carefully remove drive shaft from differential. Attach a chain to engine hanger plate and 10 mm bolt (on opposite side of engine).

Hoist engine slightly to remove weight from mounts. Remove engine under cover and disconnect header pipe from exhaust manifold. At clutch housing, remove torque rod. Remove pin retainer from shift rod and remove spring pin to disconnect shift rod. Position jack securely under transaxle.

Remove front transaxle mounting bolts. Remove brackets from intake manifold and rear mount. Remove transaxle mounting bolts from torque bracket. Remove starter and remaining transaxle mounting bolts. Separate transaxle from engine enough clear locating dowels.

Carefully lower transaxle. Insert a clutch disc guide and diagonally loosen bolts to remove clutch assembly. If reusing clutch, mark pressure plate and flywheel for installation reference.

Installation

1. Align flywheel with dowel holes in clutch cover. Using clutch alignment tool and ring gear holder, install disc and pressure plate. Tighten bolts in a crisscross pattern. Ensure 2 dowel pins are installed in clutch housing.

2. Clean release bearing sliding surface and apply molybdenum grease to surface. Apply a light amount of grease to input shaft splines. Keep clutch disc and pressure plate surfaces free of grease and dirt. To complete installation, reverse removal procedure. Refill all fluids to proper level. Adjust clutch pedal height and free play.
