Default Re: Clutch replacement

I'm not sure I understand. You want to repalce the clutch without removing the transmision? Thats going to be kinda hard.

If you read throught the directions it should be oretty self explanatory were everything goes. I would especially recomend ready the very first part. Especially the first paragraph.

There are only two motor mounts involved. The first is the 'dogbone' located on the top of the transmision housing. The second is a small square rubber piece that sits under the transmision and mounts to the engine frame.

The Clutch just mates to the flywheel. There isn't a lot to it. Just six small nuts that secure it. The throughout bearing sits inside the Transmission houseing. Basically it goes back together the same way it was taken apart. If it is already apart and you never saw it together trying to explain it will be kinda difficult. It is not like I have dissasembled engines laying around that I can go take pictures of. Sorry.

That's exactly the sitch. As his opening post states, the tranny is in the trunk.

Poor fella has acquired a vehicle where the transmission has already been removed, presumably for the said clutch replacement. Now he needs help piecing it back together, taking up where the previous shadetree mechanic left off.

Default Re: Clutch replacement

one mount is a rubber block with a long threaded rod on it. This rod points down and goes through the subframe and is relatively underneath the tranny.

The other dogbone mount is higher up and goes under the battery tray (where the battery would be) and connects to the "fender frame". A bracket attaches to the tranny and this dogbone, that bracket has a bend in it so the dogbone lines up correctly. IIRC the rubbery part of the dogbone attaches to the car and the "solid" eye the trans bracket.

One thing to check is they probably dropped the subframe to get the tranny out. Make sure all those bolts are tight when you're done with the job (you'll drop it again) and that the steering rack is connected.

You should really spend that $20 and get a repair manual.

Yes, clutch goes in between the flywheel and pressure plate. And you HAVE to align the clutch right in the MIDDLE or else you'll never gonna get that input shaft in it. Yes, throw-out bearing goes on the input shaft.

You'll also need to resurface the flywheel *machine shop* and use thread lock on those fly wheel bolts, AND torque them down to specification. So, are the bolts for the pressure plate.

Check out the user gallery for the board member Razorback. Literally every picture of every bit you could possibly need. Including step by step as it came apart and went back together. The TORQUE SPECS are in the "How to Library" section of the board.

NOTE: In his rebuild, he removed the engine and transaxle as a UNIT, but mating them back up in the car (what goes where wise) is the same. You will be installing the transaxle from BELOW, after removing the engine cradle while supporting the engine from ABOVE.

Just a sample of what you will find: (and a quick link to the gallery and most of the pictures related to the clutch/transaxle)

I wonder if the blue mark is just for balancing at the factory or as an indicator of "this side out".

When the clutch is disengaged these marks will no longer line up, if I read you right.

As I said in my first post:

Quote:

There are two bolts that go through both the rack and subframe, they are about six inches long and IIRC have 13mm heads. I imagine they're grade 10.9 so I'd get 'em at the dealer if they aren't floating around in a parts bucket.

maybe the pinch nut from the steering intermediate shaft to the steering rack is not connected? lift that big-rubbery-accordion-looking thingy and you'll have your answer.

Ok thank you geartooth94....hm however.....the steering was working before i started puting the transmission back in. I just went to turn the tie rod on the passenger side and the steering wheel just kept turning like it wasnt attached to anything! I checked under the rubber thingy and it all looked like it was hooked up....This thin little metal piece kinda round fell out? I dunno what that is? Like i said the steering WAS working before! Any suggestions?

Thanks

The steering wheel shaft connects to the steering rack with a SLIP YOKE and a pinch bolt. Slide up the BOOT that covers this connection and the problem should present itself.

Default Re: steering rack

if your steering racks got a bad bearing,
then you can fit a new one!
The one i have was 1 mm too wide from a bearing shop and had them fit a new one i had to grinding it thinner
Also you'll need the thing behide the steering wheel it's a small round box for the horn, air bag, ect. electrical connectors (air bag light has been on ever since this happened to me) replace and give your steering rack a once over with greese.
And fill the hole with the bearing in it right up with good grease and you should be good?
man that's a pain but will save alot of money!
aline everything correctly
also remove rack to work on it's much easier!
steering wheel should be dead strait after an alinement but mine hasn't been in 100,000 miles
