1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 180k miles

Recently my clutch went out on my 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse and I was thinking about changing it out myself but I have never done one. I'm wondering if you guys had any information about how hard it is, if you need any special tools and if it is recommended to have a professional do.
Do you
have the same problem?

I think its a big job to be doing along and with out the proper tools
this is the removal procedure as the book shows it
good luck

Drain transaxle. Remove battery and tray. Remove battery tray bracket, evaporative canister and bracket. Remove air cleaner and air intake hoses. Remove auto-cruise control actuator and bracket (if equipped). Disconnect speedometer connector, control cables and electrical connections at transaxle.
Without disconnecting fluid line, remove clutch release cylinder with fluid line support bracket, and wire aside. Disconnect back-up light harness and starter motor wiring. Remove starter motor. Remove upper transaxle-to-engine bolts. Support engine with Engine Support (MB991191 ).
Remove transaxle mount bracket. Raise and support vehicle. Remove front wheels and engine undercover. On models with anti-lock brakes, remove speed sensor. Remove stabilizer bar. Remove strut forks and both lower control arm ball joints from knuckles. Disconnect tie rod ends, and disengage axle shafts and support aside.
Remove bellhousing cover. Support transaxle with jack. Remove remaining transaxle-to-engine bolts. Remove transaxle mount insulator bolt. Slide transaxle assembly to right, and lower unit from vehicle.
Insert a clutch aligning tool to prevent pressure plate and clutch disc from dropping. Loosen pressure plate bolts gradually in a crisscross pattern to avoid warping pressure plate flange during removal. Remove pressure plate and clutch disc
