Do you mean flywheel removal? A flex plate is the toothed gear that bolts up to a torque converter on a vehicle with an automatic trans. If you mean a flywheel, which is what a clutch bolts up to, then yes it is highly recommended to remove it and have it surfaced when doing a clutch job. And since you are there anyway I would also suggest replacing the rear main seal

SOURCE: Removal of slave clutch master cylinder

The hydraulic cylinder is in the bell housing. When you separate the motor and tranny, you will see it as a unit with the throw-out bearing. Take the hydraulic line off before you start. You will have to bleed it when you are done.

I have a 1986 pontiac fiero 4 cyl. 5 spd . the clutch is moving fine , and so are the cables , but when you let the clutch out , nothing happens , the car does not move .

Does the pedal have "free play" at the top? Perhaps some adjustment is possible. If not, may be time to replace clutch disk.

1990 7.3 idi auto non turbo fly wheel removal a replacement

An automatic doesn't have a flywheel, it has a flex plate instead. The torque converter makes it act a lot like a flywheel, though.

But... you're probably talking about the flex plate or the ring gear around its edge. This is going to require removing the engine from the vehicle - there's no other possible way to get the flex plate out.

Once the engine is sitting on the shop floor, it's a simple job to replace the flex plate - first you unbolt the torque converter and set it aside, then you unbolt the flex plate from the crankshaft. Bolt the new flex plate onto the crankshaft, bolt the torque converter to the new flex plate, and put the engine back into the vehicle.

How to replace a flywheel on a ford five hundred

Remove the inspection plate and undo the bolts attaching the torque converter to the flex plate Remove transmission If you are not familiar with that procedure give the job to a mechanic. Remove the clutch if not auto again know how to replace clutch pressure plate and clutch plate. Something tells me that the flywheel isn't stripped but the flexiplate has fractured as it is unusual for the teeth of the ring gear to be completely stripped. Moving on use an impact gun to undo the bolts holding on the flywheel/flex plate Installation is reverse to removal. But I recommend you have good advice handy to do this job

Is there a remedy for a low clutch engagement on my '98, 2.5L, 5 spd Cherokee? It has 156k miles and I do not know its history ...

Check the clutch master cylinder for leaks, especially where the rod goes into it from under the dash. check the line to the slave unit for leaks, check the slave for leaks (if your slave is part of the throwout bearing and is inside the bellhousing, look for fluid driping from the bottom of the housing). If that checks out OK, try having someone push down on the pedal and open the bleed fitting on the slave, to remove any air from the system. If there is no air, likely there is a problem with the clutch itself. (worn out disc or pressure plate spring)
