How difficult is this to do for the DIY? When at idle, I hear a clicking bell-like sound. It goes away when I press the clutch in.
Do you
have the same problem?

Good afternoon,

This will be tough to do at home.

With four wheel drive, you will need a transmission jack to support it and pull it out.

You will need to get it high enough for you to drop it out so you can access the clutch.

I do not know your ability but it is tough to do without a lift.

Welcome to 2CarPros.

Any time the transmission needs removed, I call it difficult because it's a lot of work. However, you may feel differently. With that in mind, I am going to provide the directions you will need to do it. With that information, you can determine if it is something you want to do. I will start with the clutch assembly which includes the release bearing and testing and inspection. I strongly recommend replacing the pressure plate, clutch disc, and at least resurfacing the flywheel if you take it apart. You don't want to do it a second time and the kits aren't terribly expensive. The second set of directions will relate to removal of the transmission. The third set of directions is putting it all back together. All attached pictures will correlate with these directions.

1. INSPECT CLUTCH DISC ASSEMBLY
a. Using vernier calipers, measure the rivet head depth.
Maximum rivet depth: 0.3 mm (0.012 inch)
If necessary, replace the clutch disc assembly
b. Install the clutch disc assembly onto the transaxle assembly.

NOTICE: Take care not to insert the clutch disc assembly in the wrong orientation.

c. Using a dial indicator, check the clutch disc assembly runout.
Minimum runout: 1.0 mm (0.039 inch)
If necessary, replace the clutch disc assembly

pic 6

2. INSPECT CLUTCH COVER ASSEMBLY
a. Using vernier calipers, inspect the depth and width of wear of the diaphragm spring.

3. INSPECT FLYWHEEL SUB-ASSEMBLY
a. Using a dial indicator, inspect the flywheel sub assembly runout.
Maximum runout: 0.1 mm (0.004 inch)
If necessary, replace the flywheel sub-assembly.

Pic 8

4. INSPECT CLUTCH RELEASE BEARING ASSEMBLY
a. Turn the release bearing by hand while applying force in the axial direction.

HINT: The bearing is permanently lubricated and requires no cleaning or lubrication.

If necessary, replace the release bearing assembly.

INSTALLATION

HINT: Following the order in the illustration, uniformly tighten the bolts.

C. Move SST up and down, right and left lightly, after checking that the disc is in the center, and tighten the bolts.

Pic 11

3. INSPECT AND ADJUST CLUTCH COVER ASSEMBLY
a. Using a dial indicator with roller instrument, check the diaphragm spring tip alignment.
Maximum non-alignment: 0.5 mm (0.020 inch)
If the alignment is not as specified, adjust the diaphragm spring tip alignment using SST.
