clutch not like car clutch basically single exterior nut then start pulling outer assembly pulley and electrical components apart need some special tools and a rebuild kit to repair an auto a/c compressor
In order to replace the right front lower control arm you will a spring compressor. That's the most important tool you will need so that the spring does not fly out at you when you lower down the control arm. The control arm bolts are 21mm or 22mm nuts & bolts depending on if alignment adjust bolts installed or not. If adjustment bolts are installed then you will want to pay attention and note to which side the notches face so that you install them back into their original position. The ball joint nut will either be a 17mm or a 19mm. 16mm for the shock and a 22mm & 17mm for the sway bar link. Compressing that spring is the most important part of the jb though so don't forget to compress it.
Now we have a problem here, either you didn't give the right model vehicle when you posted or you have one heck of a mixed up dodge durango :P Durangos share frames and suspension with dodge rams and both don't have shock towers per say. They have one bolt holding them to the lower control arm and a frame mount with just one very accessible bolt to hold the shock in place. Usually 3 bolts and a shock tower is only on MacPherson struts usually seen on smaller cars and smaller SUVs. And in any case if you do have a MacPherson type shock and shock tower, you DO need to remove the 3 bolts on the shock tower AND remove the bolts at the spindle to remove the whole assembly (shock, spring and top plate) to change the shocks. And also i must warn you that it is really really really NOT safe to just unscrew the shock bolt that hold it in place in the top plate, as the coil spring will be under pressure even without the weight of the car and will spring out pretty darn fast and you might break or cut off a finger or an arm. And NO i'm not joking... You need a special tool called a coil spring compressor to safely remove and reinstall the coil spring when changing the shock absorber on those models. Hope this helps a bit, if not, just write back with more detail and correct make, model and country of origin and i'll do all i can to help. :) Cheers!
Use a spring compressor to clamp the spring down (Be Careful). disconnect strut from lower control arm, and the 3 or 4 bolts under the hood ontop of the strut tower. Remove strut and spring, remove spring from strut (Still Compressed), put spring on new strut (Still Compressed), Install bolts under hood, aka strut tower, reconnect lower control arm, slowly uncompress the spring and make sure it seats properly. Take it an alignment shop to get your front end re-aligned.
Yes, you need a spring compressor. The sturt and coil spring come off as one. Then you need to compress spring to remove strut. The old one off and the new one on and then un-compress the spring and remount in car.
Sounds simple, but it can take a while.
clutches are hydraulic. It may be that either the clutch master
cylinder or slave cylinder are stuck or some sort of restriction in the
line. Or, it may be that the throwout bearing or pressure plate have
some sort of issue (this requires pulling the tranny and looking at the
clutch, pressure plate (plate that rides against the clutch with
springs to engage the clutch) and throwout bearing (bearing on the arm
that presses against the pressure plate to engage the clutch).
Of course, I am assuming you have checked for any outside restrictions
that would not allow the pivot arm to retract (missing spring or piece
of ice or debris stuck in there).
Remove the front wheel.
Locate and remove the 3 nuts on the upper frame mount,top of the shock.(torque 20 ft lb)
Remove the nut on the sway bar link.(torque 18 ft lb)
Remove the lower bolt that goes thru lower control arm and shock.(torque 258 ft lb)
Then use a spring compressor to compress spring and remove the nut on the spring plate.(41 ft lb)
