It would be extremely difficult - REALLY difficult. Getting bearing attached to new fork and pressure required to connect to linkage, it would be literally a nightmare. Just drop driveshaft, undo trans mount, undo bell housing and slide trans back (not out) and you have access to TOB & fork.

Is there a trick to install the throwout bearing in a 2003 hyundai elantra?

Without fitting a new bearing to the release fork it is virtually impossible however, i managed to put one together by cutting an inspection hole just big enough to get your hand inside above the slave cylinder and manually meshing the release fork, bearing and spigot shaft simultaneously

We installed a new clutch in our manual jeep cherokee. The car starts up and it will shift into all gears but it just wont move. The rpms go up but nothing absolutley nothing

This problem could have many possibilities. The throwout bearing opens the clutch, the clutch fork moves the throwout bearing back. Is any of this stuck or not in its proper place? Is there something wrong (broken or stripped) in your transmission? I am trying to help eliminate a few possibilities but I would like to have a few more details about what the symptoms were before the clutch install and after to help diagnose problem. I have been wrenching for a long tme, but details can mean everything. Contact me if you can with more info regarding problem. I am new to this particular site and do not know all it will do yet.

Installed a new clutch in 1980 CJ7, Seemed to be going fine until I tried to connect the Clutch Rod Assembly. Rodd apperas to now be too short and the clutch will not engage. Have I tightened the pressure...

When replacing any clutch it is necessary to match the finger or diaphragm height and also the throwout bearing height. If either aren't the same that difference is magnified at the other end of the fork. Can't tell you if you lost anything ...I'm not there.
Generally you can compensate for any difference by using a threaded sleeve on the rod.and add a piece of threaded rod on the end to mate with the fork. (use jam nuts after adjustment to keep it from moving). I've also seen the same problem with some remanufactured pressure plates if too much material is removed during re-facing. Only other option is to remove and measure everything.
No adjustments on the linkage anywhere??.

I need instructions on replacing the clutch in a '94 Chevy Blazer 4x4, 350 engine. Specifically the pilot bearing, throwout bearing.

The pilot bearing is pressed into the flywheel and you need a pilot bearing/bushing puller. Some A/P stores will rent it to you for free (deposit). the throwout bearing is held onto the clutch fork normally by clips. Sometimes you have to take the "fork" out to get the bearing off.

Make sure to note how "deep' the pilot bearing/bushing is so that when you install the new one it is set at the right depth.

Replacing the clutch on a 1998 Saturn SL1 we encountered a problem after installation, The clutch would not disengage. The hydraulic clutch system and slave cylinder seemed to be working fine, we even...

It is very difficult for you to disengage the clutch by hand or with any leverage you can get outside the transmission. There is over 200 lbs of force clamping on the clutch disc.

If you replaced the clutch and took the slave cylinder out of the transmission without putting a brick under the clutch pedal or disconnecting the pivot arm from the pedal then you ruined the hydraulics. Buy a new PRE-BLED system from a local auto store. Generally this is the problem.

Either that or the clutch fork is bent or you installed the throwout bearing backwards (or simply fell off the fork which is not all that uncommon).

I just install an different engine in a 1999 3.2L Rodeo. the fork for the throw out bearing is hitting the pressure plate when the clutch in depress any help?

Sorry to tell you this-but you do not have the throw out bearing fork properly installed on throwout bearing. There is a spring clip on the fork that has to fit inside of throwout bearing's "groove"-I bet you the spring clip is on the BACKSIDE of throwout bearing! You will have to pull transmission back away from the engine to gain access to fix this. I do not envy the chore ahead of you-sorry!

How to remove/install a 4 cylinder jeep Yj

If you need to ask, you have never done one. I suggest that you get a chiltons or haynes manual to guide you through it. tips are: use large bolts without heads to guide the transmission back onto bellhousing so you don't need to hang the unit on the clutch disc and risk bending it. Change the pilot bearing in the back of the crankshaft if it's the least bit worn, be very careful not to damage the crank sensor on the bellhousing, and use a good pilot shaft when aligning the disc inside the clutch cover. spread some white lube on the input shaft and front guide collar on the transmission and make sure the throwout bearing has sufficient grease in the inside groove.
good luck!!!

1993 Ford Ranger 4.0 I put a new slave/throwout bearing in. I went to put it in gear and the stick shift is stuck in the neutral position. It won't go into any gear. When I start the truck, it is stuck...

Have an assistant push in on the clutch while you observe the function of the cluth throwout bearing lever, it may be that the throwout bearing fork lever is not on its pivot point or is out of adjustment, you should be able to rotate the rear tires when the clutch is pushed in if not the throw out bearing and fork assembly either was not put in corectly or you did not bleed out the air from the slave cylinder.
