    thank you for responding! Is the clutch up near the flywheel? The reason I'm asking, is the arm activating the clutch is at the very rear of the transmission, causing me to believe the clutch may be located at the back of the transmission, therefore it may be unecessary for the whole transmission to come off. I've only done clutch jobs on American made vehicles.

I'm pretty sure the clutch *has* to be against the flywheel, otherwise if it was directly connected the input and lay shaft would constantly spin even if the wheels were disconnected, which isn't the point of the clutch. Probably the arm for the clutch is just further along the hydraulic line at the back, rather than having it up the front. Open it the way you usually would as I can't see it working any other way.

The engine and transmisson need to be seperated, the CV joints will need to be removed, along with any mounts that hold the transmisson up. If you need any other help needed during the removal let me know, thank you for using fixya.com

How do I remove automatic transmission from 1993 Chev 2500 pickup?


TRANSMISSION REMOVAL IN STEPS.
The Drive Shaft
  • Using a 1/2-to-2-ton floor jack, lift the front of the truck and place jack stands under the frame. Once the truck is lifted enough for you to safely move around under it, begin removing the four bolts connecting the U-joint between the drive shaft and the rear axle. When you pull the drive shaft out of the tail shaft, transmission fluid will pour out of the tail shaft, so place a drip pan or oil-changing pan under the tail shaft of the transmission.
Lines And Linkage
  • If the truck is an automatic, you will need to remove two transmission lines from the passenger side of the transmission by the bell housing close to the transmission dip stick. If it's a manual transmission you won't have those lines, but you will have shifting linkage on the driver's side of the transmission. Depending on the year of the truck, the linkage is held on by either a cotter pin or locking-sleeve washer. You will also need to remove the speedometer cable. If it's an older truck, it will be a hard-cased cable similar to the emergency brake cable that threads onto the driver side of the transmission just before the bell housing. If the truck is a newer model, it will be an electrical set of wires attached to a plug on the tail shaft.

Remove From Engine
  • Remove the transmission mount bolt that holds the tail end of the transmission to the cross member on the frame. You will need to either use wood blocks or a jack to support the weight of the transmission. Take out the nine bolts on the bell housing that attach the transmission to the engine--there is one on the top center of the bell housing, two along each side of the bell housing and two on each side at the bottom next to the guide pins.
Remove From Vehicle
  • Once removed, maneuver the transmission to the rear of the truck about 6 inches until it clears either the clutch kit of a manual or the torque converter of an automatic. When the transmission is free, lower the bell housing end of the transmission down until the tail shaft is clear of the cross member.

Where is the clutch auto adjustment located at on a 98 manual Volkswagen jetta?


you most likely have a hydraulic clutch, which the clutch master cylinder is located on the firewall on the driverside close to your drivers side windsheild.it takes brake fluid to fill dot brake fluid will fill it properly. however if your slave cylinder on the transmission is leaking,this will require a replacement of the clutch slave cylinder. look for leakage under passenger side,,just under or below passenger side seat onto ground. recommend if you replace the clutch slave cylinder,you also replace clutch master cylinder located on the drivers side firewall at wind sheild.look under the car while someone pumps the clutch in and out,if you see brake fluid leaking under car onto ground or inside onto carpet at brake pedal,you have a bad clutch master cylinder. recommend you replace both slave cylinder and clutch master cylinder. this will save you lots of time and headaches. thank you for choosing fixya.com

How do i change the clutch cable on a vw jetta it a 97


97 VOLKSWAGEN CABRIOLET/ JETTA CLUTCH CABLE REPLACEMENT

Place a jack under the lever on the gearbox to lift up the arm enough to remove the retaining clip on the engine-end of the clutch cable. Remove the clips and pull the cable loose from the transmission. Then go into the dash and remove the instrument cluster/ gauges to gain access to the pedal end of the cable. You'll need to pop off the plastic clips left and right of the dash to remove the plastic insert in front of the gauge cluster, then two screws and two plugs on the back of the gauges takes care of that step. Push the clutch cable in, and look for the round end of the cable where it's stuck into the top of the pedal. Pop it out with a screwdriver and pull the cable out under the hood. When you insert the new cable, you may need to tap the rounded end in with a hammer and punch or screwdriver to get it to seat back in the pedal assembly.

Location of crank sensor 1998 jetta 2.0


It's located near the cam gear on the front of the engine however, the crank sensor, to the right of the oil filter near the bell housing is the part notorious for going out on these cars, and causing a p0322 and/or p0341 code, and sometimes others as well To replace the crank sensor you have to: Support the motor with a floor jack. Remove the starter, 2 of the starter bolts connect to the motor mount. Remove the motor mount from the frame, very easy. Remove the oil filter. That will give you just enough room to get an allen wrench in to remove the bolt holding the sensor in.

Trying to change the clutch, having trouble getting the transmission off. Hoping for a picture of transmission on vehicle


Look everything over carefully. Did you remove all the bellhousing to engine bolts? Have you removed the starter and the splash pan at the lower front of the bellhousing? Sometimes the locating pins on the engine get a bit stuck and it needs a bit of coaxing to get it loose, but providing you have everything unbolted, it should come apart!
