    axles out, intermediate shaft out, both tranny mounts off, unbolt, pull sideways and then wathc the 80lb weight of it, unbolt pressure plate, disc should come down as well, take off flywheel, resurface flywheel, add new pilot bearing, tq down flywheel, put disc on with pressure plate using clutch alignment tool, tq down, and reverse what i wrote up to.


    Nice one long sentence.


    Best to do it by the book, so go out and buy one since it is a good investment.

    I'm going to give you the long version but you will still have to reference a manual for the full details.

    -drain tranny fluid, there is a plug below your passenger side axle that a 3/8 ratchet will fit into.

    -take your axles out, when you're removing the intermediate shaft don't forget to undo the bolts that hold it against your block(i believe they are 17mm bolts)

    -remove the clutch slave cylinder

    -support your engine with either a jack or an engine hoist

    -undo the supports for the tranny from underneath and also take off the dust cover

    -undo the tranny mounts(make sure you're somehow supporting the tranny)

    -remove all the electrical connections

    -remove starter

    -undo the tranny bolts and pull the tranny off of the engine

    -undo the pressure plate bolts and remove the pressure plate and clutch disc

    -get the flywheel resurfaced

    -reverse process


    NOTE: make sure you replace the pilot bearing, throw-out bearing, and don't forget to grease up the clutch fork.
