Manual 2WD Gear box won't come off back of motor,have undone all bell housing bolts including starter motor, any tips?

the MUA box? NOT THE T5R, so why not just say it????

may be the Fly wheel pilot bearing is seized.?

my guess you got to step 12 (12 = 1 below)
  1. Remove the slave cylinder heat protector. Unbolt and remove the slave cylinder. Don't disconnect the hydraulic line.
  2. Remove the slave cylinder dust covers.
  3. Matchmark the driveshafts at the flanges and remove them.
  4. Disconnect the reverse light switch, 4WD indicator switch, 1-2 and 3-4 indicator switch harness connectors.
  5. Disconnect the speed sensor harness connector.
  6. Remove the 2 harness clamps from the transmission case.
  7. Attach a chain hoist to the engine.
  8. Using a transmission jack, raise the transmission slightly. Remove the 2 rear transmission mounting nuts.
  9. Remove the center crossmember (8 bolts).
21 is for 4wd
1 below is 22
  1. Remove the 3 flywheel inspection cover bolts.
  2. Use clutch release bearing remover J-39207 or an equivalent pry tool to release the bearing from the pressure plate. Push the release fork toward the rear of the vehicle. Insert the tool between the release bearing and the pressure plate collar. Move the lever to the rear to pry.
  3. Raise the engine slightly with a chain hoist and remove the bolts and nuts securing the transmission to the engine.
  4. Carefully pull the transmission rearward. Lower the transmission from the vehicle.

I'd never do major work on any drive line with out the FSM at my side.
or a login acount at
or fail big time, for $15 bucks, was it worth it, bet not.

How to replace clutch step by step on a toyota rav4 4wd

You need some very specialized tools to do that You'll need a jack to hold the transfer case once you remove all the bolts holding it to the transmission. Remove the drive shafts.Then you'll need to remove the transmission, again with a supporting jack. Once that has been accomplished , remove the bolts holding the clutch to the flywheel. I'd replace the pilot bearing in the flywheel that holds the input shaft to the gearbox before proceeding. There are special tools available to do that. Now assemble the clutch disk and the clutch plate and put the bolts back in without tightening them. Now take the clutch alignment tool and push it thru the clutch disk and into the new pilot bearing. position it so the clutch disk is dead center in the clutch plate and then finish tightening the bolts Put a new throw out bearing on the clutch release lever and reinstall the transmission and transfer case. Reinstall the drive shafts and replace any gear oil that may have spilled out of the transmission or transfer case. Adjust the clutch pedal clearance to spec and you're done.

I need a diagram on where to fill the clutch fluid on my 1998 Isuzu Rodeo. It is a manual transmission. Also, do you put clutch and transmission fluid in different places?

Clutch and tranny fluid does not go in the same place whatever you do don't mix them as for where to fill the clutch fluid, believe it or not some of the clutch share a resovoir with the brakes but others have a smaller resovoir right next to the break master cylinder, but that's only if you have a hydraulic clutch some where actually cable so it wouldn't take hydraulic fluid at all.. I hope this helps

When I press the clutch in my 99 Rodeo, there is this horrible noise. What is the problem?

if the noise is only there when you push down the clutch, you need to replace the throw out bearing.

I have a 2000 Isuzu Rodeo in which the clutch pedal went to the floor & stayed there. Upon inspection, the clutch master cylinder was empty on fluid. I filled the reservoir & bleed the clutch...

It sounds as if you have 2 problems here.

The fact that the clutch pedal went to the floor and stayed there suggest a fault in the master cylinder. It may be that you need to overhaul the master cylinder.

Overhaul kits are available at less cost than a clutch master cylinder:

The grinding noise ... A grinding noise would be caused by either the gear not engaging properly because of the defective clutch.

Or, if it is more of a squealing noise - that may be the clutch release bearing at fault.

Are you absolutely sure that your entire clutch unit - pressure plate, driven plate and release bearing aren't worn?

Has a noise at idle,like a noisy input bearing to the gearbox, if I push the clutch in the noise stops. but the noise is not there all the time, I can make it make the noise, if I depress the clutch a few...

Throwout bearing is going out so it means you would have to remove the transmission, and also could have a bad pilot bearing out and or a broken clutch spring so it would still need to remove the transmission to fix it and then If it where me I would do a clutch job on it.

Clutch assembly

Just put it back the same way you took it off. If you buy the right clutch kit (Sachs I think) it should come with a disc alignment tool. Remember to tighten the pressure plate bolts evenly all the way around the plate. And don't forget the pilot bushing or bearing.

Inner wheel bearing

The inner wheel bering is held in with a plate that is screwed in. no special tool is needed. You must remove the bearing housing from the brake disk. It took me 1.5 hours to do both sides.
