Re: What I have to do to replace flywheel on a 2007 5...
Describing this and doing this are definitely two different things. What is the vehicle doing to make you think it's the flywheel? It takes a crazy amount of abuse to damage a flywheel.
To change the flywheel you will need to unbolt the transmission from the engine and move it out of the way. Unbolt the clutch assembly from the flywheel face and then unbolt the flywheel from the end of the crank shaft.
This is NOT a job you can really do on your driveway as the transmission AND the flywheel are ridiculously heavy. The mount holes on the flywheel are also Not evenly spaced so it needs to be positioned exactly or the mount holes won't line up.

Remove the inspection plate and undo the bolts attaching the torque converter to the flex plate Remove transmission If you are not familiar with that procedure give the job to a mechanic. Remove the clutch if not auto again know how to replace clutch pressure plate and clutch plate. Something tells me that the flywheel isn't stripped but the flexiplate has fractured as it is unusual for the teeth of the ring gear to be completely stripped. Moving on use an impact gun to undo the bolts holding on the flywheel/flex plate Installation is reverse to removal. But I recommend you have good advice handy to do this job
Did you machine the flywheel? Because if you replace the clutch without machining the flywheel. The flywheel will have high and low spots on it. The new clutch is perfectly flat, and the old clutch was worn into the flywheel. Thus, vibration! I sincerely hope that I helped. Best wishes to ya.
