I've put in many clutch over my life time but this one is got me stumped. I can't get the transaxle installed in the new clutch. I have the cluch disk centered correctly ( it used no pilot bearing, strange ) but I can't get the input shaft of the transaxle started in the cluch disk. Been trying for days, everytime I pull the clutch disk out to inspect its bured up from all the attempting of installing the transaxle, (cheap auto zone cluch ) I've forced the engine forward to give me more room also. Seems the right transaxle output shaft is right up to the engine, maybe thats the problem ? Could sure use some advice. Gene

Re: '98 Toyota Corolla 5 speed
The way that we install the box's is to remove the spyder housing....You can lever it out with a large screw driver....Another thing to check...the clutch plate....Have you fitted it onto the input shaft (spigot shaft) and tried it for size, to make sure you've been supplied with the correct replacement? Sorry if I'm asking stupid questions, but it can happen!....After you've fitted the box, refit the spyder housing, using a plank of wood and a good clout....It fits and locks in with a spring clip....

Unhook positive battery cable, the clutch cable or hydraulic slave cylinder to get the transaxle ready for removal. Secure your car in a safe position. Jack up the front. Stabilize engine with a jack below the oil pan. Remove the transaxle. Separate engine from the transaxle. Push transaxle away from the engine. Disengage the bolts around the pressure plate. Take it and the clutch disc out. Follow instructions for replacing the clutch. Take flywheel and old seal out. Install a new seal. Done! Know how to repair cars by http;//www.obd2express.co.uk
There are two plugs. The drain plug you will see by looking at the tranny from driver side near the drive axle. The fill plug is the one you stick your finger in and is somewhere below the clutch slave cylinder. Undo them with a 24mm socket. And yes, open the fill plug first.

this should help.thanks.Helpmech.
This is a heavy job. This must be done in a service center. The entire automatic transmission assembly will be taken off from the engine.before the other standard 5 speed transmission can be installed. The car will be lifted up to dismount the old one. This also need a mobile lift to hold the dismounted auto transmission and bring it down The mobile lift will also bring the 5 speed tranny up and mounted to the engine, and the propeller shaft. But you must have the compatible 5 speed tranny first.
I see. sounds like you need a new clutch. OK, here is a step by step guide to follow. it will help with the removal and installation of your new clutch.
Remove the Old Clutch
Verify that your vehicle's clutch is the source of your problems and
not the pedal-arm bushings, activating cables or the slave-master
Unhook the positive battery cable, the clutch cable or hydraulic slave
cylinder to get the transaxle ready for easy removal. Eliminate
anything that may hinder your efforts, including exhaust pipes and the
Secure your car in a safe position before jacking up the front end.
Stabilize the engine with a jack below the oil pan. Remove the transaxle by undoing at least one engine mount.
Separate the engine from the transaxle by removing the bolts that surround the flywheel bell housing.
Push the transaxle away from the engine until the input shift clears the pressure plate.
Disengage the bolts surrounding the pressure plate and take it and the
clutch disc out. Check to see if the flywheel's friction surface is
scored, checked or has hot spots. Remove, machine and reinstall the
flywheel, if needed.
Examine the pilot bearing (bushing) located at the flywheel's center to
be sure the needle bearings are lubricated and that there's no galling.
Also look for any oil leaking around the rear main engine seal.
Replace the clutch
Follow the instructions for replacing your car's clutch carefully to avoid having to remove the transaxle.
Check that the transaxle's input shaft isn't leaking; replace if needed.
Take out the flywheel and the old seal and install a new seal.
Install a New Clutch
Clean the crankshaft flange before putting in the flywheel. With the
flywheel on top of the flange, secure the bolts in a star formation to
the specified torque for your vehicle.
Install the clutch disc and pressure plate. Prior to putting in the
transaxle, attach the new release bearing to the release fork. The fork
should move freely.
Hoist the transaxle into position and move it forward until the input
shaft glides into the clutch disc's spindled hole. Do not apply force.
Reinstall any bolts or mounts that were removed to replace your car's
clutch. Grab the transaxle, release the jack and lower your vehicle.
Consider replacing your car's clutch cable. If you don't replace the
cable at least adjust it for the right amount of free-play.
Confirm that your clutch's self-adjusting action is performing
correctly by depressing the slave cylinder's piston into its bore.
Drive your car to be sure your clutch is working properly.
