Why? because I'm biting off alot more than I think I can chew right now. My gf's brother owns a 2002 Mini Cooper S, and he comes to me with this "I blew my clutch" issue. Well, shoot, I've changed clutches before. Their not that hard. I was f'cking wrong. I just spent about 3 hours on pulling the front end off, being cautious and makeing sure I'm not wasteing time on doing extra stuff that doesnt need to be done. I'll take pics tomorrow and show you what I've done so far in order to pull this tranny out, We discussed if we should just drop the tranny, and thats a no go, we dont have the tools nore the space to pull just the tranny. So we're going with pulling the engine and tranny. Which is starting to look alot more easier than we thought. My only issue, how the f'ck do you disconnect the shifter cables?!?!?!
