How to replace clutch on 2003 HYundai Tiburon Gt

I recommend you get the Haynes repair manual on your vehicle. It will give you illustrations and some short cuts to make lining the clutch up a lot easier.

Need to replace clutch. bought the parts.

ok this is involved here,,,if youre doing it on the floor you gonna have a harder time,,,there is 2 ways to do this the first gives you more room to swap the clutch but you remove more stuff to gain that extra room,meaning more time,,,,the second is the way i would do it,,,remove the battery and tray,remove the top trans bolts and connectors etc, remove wheels and drivers side axle,you can remove the passenger side axle if you wish,it makes it easier if youre a first timer,,,go under car remove exhaust bolts from where header meets pipe,3, nuts, 13mm header,remove top trans mount and lower trans mount and loosen the passenger side subframe bolts 18mm and take out the 2 drivefrs side subframe bolt,BEFORE you do this suport the engine somehow either with chain and bar from top or jack under it,,the jack sucks as it gets in yuor way,,then slide the trans off the engine over to the side and it should kinda tuck in there you might have to strap it there while you swap the clutch,,,ALSO remove the reverse light switch first so you dont break it trying to tuck the trans aside,,then swap the clutch,,,this is the quicker way but tighter and harder if you dont know what is going on,,the other way is all the same but you remove the lower subframe completely from the car,,this requiresm more work,,,,steering shaft bolt removal,,,lower control arm nuts,etc,you choose

Car shudders during acceleration in 1st gear.

You don't need to change your clutch!
All you need to do is replace a simple shaft which can be done by any mechanic!
Cost you much less!

Clutch Replacement

I just checked my AllData repair info. It does not mention removing the engine to replace the clutch. It does say that you'll have to support the engine to remove the transaxle. If done on jack stands, this is easily done with a floor jack and block of wood under the engine's oil pan.
