Question about 1998 Chevrolet Prizm
Hi Juztlove, I agree with you....The world would be a much better place if we all did! Is your vehicle manual or automatic? If its automatic each gear has a clutch and to that job is difficult and needs a very clean workshop. If it's manual and rear wheel drive, the first operation is to remove the propeller shaft, if it's front wheel drive, it will mean removing the front suspension and then the half shafts. Before you begin disconnect the battery. Remove the pipe into the clutch slave cylinder and drain the fluid into a suitable container. Loosen the bolts holding the gearbox mounting and the cross member. Remove all the bolts around the bell housing and then with the help of a friend and a jack gently pull the box towards you and get ready to support the weight. Once removed and out of the way, remove the bolts which hold the clutch cover (pressure plate) that is what holds in the clutch plate. Did I mention that this is not an easy job? It would be advisable to replace the pressure plate, clutch plate and thrust release bearing at the same time. When fitting back make sure that the clutch plate is aligned correctly and correctly centralized as the clutch cover is tightened. Here comes the good bit....Refit the gearbox using any appropriate swear words which come to mind, until the spline shaft aligns with the clutch plate and then once it has, slide on the gearbox and begin fitting and tightening the bolts from the top. Refit the rest in the opposite way from dis assembly. By the way you can stop swearing at that time. Best Regards John.
