Un plug battery, un plug starter, take off your drive shaft from yolk side, take down tranny,, make sure to take off shifter first- easier than having to be extra careful to not hit it and have a whole new set of problems, next is pressure plate, then take off your fly wheel- get it resurfaced then all you gotta do it start putting it back, starting from the fly wheel getting back on, clutch, pressure plate, tranny, drive shaft an so on. Its not hard just a little time consuming. Need basic tools not rocket science for this one. Would advise to get new pressure plate bolts even fly wheel bolts if you want, new u-joints are never a bad idea either. Plus note long nose pliers will make life so much better when your taking down/putting up your drive shaft. I've only done one and it was with my brother- was his second time doing a clutch. Keep looking for some other tips I dont wanna miss something important. Just remember take your time.
