Clutch , presure plate and gearbox remove

You need the right equipment and knowledge to do this job there are a lot of cables wires etc that need to be removed before the gearbox can be loosened and removed.
There are also a lot of special tools required and the job is best done on a ramp or pit to gain access.
Trying to do this on the ground would be difficult and very dangerous also the engine needs to be suspended when the gearbox mounts are removed.
It is impossible to remove the clutch pressure plate, plate and hydraulic bearing on the C4 without removing the gearbox.
Take it to a garage/ clutch specialist.

Is it possible to replace the clutch without taking it to a garage on a Hyundai Accent 1999.

Yes it is if you have all the right tools and equipment. You will need a good set of jack stands to support the car. You wil also need a good floor jack with a transmission adaptor or a transmission jack. The driveshafts will have to be removed and that requires the removal of the axle nuts. They are held on by LOTS of torque and an air impact hammer is needed or a large socket with a long breaker bar for leverage. you also have to seperate the lower ball joint to move the hub assembly for axle removal, this calls for a special tool called a "pickle fork" or ball joint seperator.

As you can tell, it involves some special tools and equipment. If you don't use these tools often, then the cost of them might be more than what a garage charges to do the job. Places that do just clutch jobs (Like clutch masters) might be the best bet for the price.

Clutch replacement

Clutch replacement will requre the removal of the transmission. If it is a rear wheel drive the trans can be removed fairly easily. Front wheel drive autos have the engine and transmission mounted in a "transerve" (across) fashion and require more time for removal. rear wheel drive requires the removal of the driveshaft (not difficult) and the front wheel drive requires the removal of the drive axles( can be difficlt). If your not mechanicly inclined and have a fair assortment of tools and equipment, this job is best left to a quailified person. You need Jack stands, floor jack, transmission adaptor, and if it's a front wheel drive, you will need an inpact gun to loosen the axle nuts on the drive axles.

it might be very difficult if you have no idea how the clutch actually works.
