Remove the drive shaft 1st, and the transfer case if it is a 4X4, then with the transmission supported remove the cross member and mount, disconnect any wiring and all linkage on trans, the shift linkage may have to be removed from top side in truck, but it has to come out. Make sure everything top and bottom is removed then remove that bolts that attach trans to back of engine, carefully pull trans back, and lower down on a floor jack, then unbolt clutch cover and remove the disc and cover, remove the engine flywheel and take it to a machine shop to have it resurfed, if you don't do this the new clutch will ****/shudder on release. Make sure you support the truck with good jack stands at all four corners, you will need to get it as high up in the air as possiable, at least 3 feet. reverse above to reinstall. Good luck and be careful!

Hi i guess you have solved the mistery by now you have to remove the clutch arm nut and arm ( it has a master spline so you cant get it wrong) on the cross shaft as this has a PULL type of clutch and the arm has to undo as you pull the gear box out it will NOT come out unless you do to replace do the reverse operation regards ray w QLD OZ

My clutch intermittently shudders/vibrates when depressed. Is that a sign it is failing?

The short answer is YES. Most likely a warped clutch, will need a new pressure plate and clutch disk and in the worst case fly wheel replaced or machined. The good news is that it could last for awhile before complete failure or until you get annoyed and wish to replace it.

Loud snapping noise heard when changing gears

From the way you've described it your gear stick linkages maybe on there way out. When changing gear does the car resist getting into gear?

If it's more of a crunching sound then I would try double de clutching, to do this you need to:
change gear as usual but instead of holding down the clutch throughout the gear change hold it down to take the vehicle into neutral then release the clutch then push the clutch down again and change into desired gear.
To change down it's basically the same principal but you push down the clutch to put the vehicle into neutral then push the throttle down just to pitch revs then release the throttle and push the clutch down to change into your desired gear, if it won't go in to gear easily then rather the throttle until it does.

You can go onto youtube and search for double de clutching and I'm sure some results will come up

hope this helps!

Where is clutch engaging? close to firewall or up high on pedal. If up high, your clutch needs replacing, Low, your clutch is ok, maybe throwout bearing is bad or air in system or not adjusted correctly

My clutch for the compressor is bad. 98 nissan froniter 4cyclinder . Is it possible to change clutch without removing compressor? Or should I just change entire compressor out?

It is possible to change the clutch out if you can find someone who will sell them. Check out some place like, check out the power transmissions tab, and click on clutches, and you may find one. Otherwise, it's difficult to find the clutches by themselves. You'll need a puller to get the old one off.

Clutch won't engage--cannot shift

hydraulic clutch needs servicing or needs bleeding like a brake system wont work with air in the lines neither will hydraulic clutch's. you shouldnt have to change the clutch just service the slave cylinder ,that should give you back some pedal to might want a mechanic to bleed it or have it replaced.
