Question about Cars & Trucks
Is the manual gearbox interchangeable, and are the parts (pressure plate, clutch disk and bearing) the same or do they need to be changed?

There you go, just click on your year and the clutch kit. You can always call your local auto store and ask them to price it for you.

Pilot bearing (pressed into flywheel) or release bearing (presses against clutch pressure plate)?
Regardless, the repair is the same. Replace clutch disc, pressure plate, release bearing & pilot bearing. Most flywheels are available or as part of a complete kit, minimum is to inspect & resurface flywheel when replacing clutch assymbly.

It is a fairly easy job for any person to tackle providing they can handle tools, (some people can't turn a screwdriver), First you have to get the car up in the air with room to move under there, put it on jack stands if you can, but definitely on something so that when it comes down it doesn't squish your legs or your head. Pull the transmission, This will probably include the cross members and exhaust mounts, linkage, tranny mounts, drive shaft, could be a bunch of stuff in the way, once it is on the floor, you can remove the pressure plate off the back of the engine, pull off the clutch plate, note the condition of the flywheel, if it looks like dried mud, it needs to be surfaced. A burned flywheel will cause chatter, get the new clutch plate on there, first make sure it fits the tranny, real important, better to check now than when you are wrestling the tranny back in and it doesn't go because it is the wrong clutch spline, line up the clutch with the pinion bearing, it should slide right in nicely. Get the throw out bearing set before it goes back in, bolt it back together, you should be burning rubber and pulling wheelies again in no time. You might have to adjust the clutch slave cylinder pin if it has one, get more throw out of it. Or less. You might find some videos on youtube just for your car, but they are basically all the same.
