How difficult is it to replace the throw out bearing on my T-45. The sqeaking noise is driving me nuts. I'm new to the 5 speed world, but have access to a lift.. I'm assuming that I disconnect my negative battery, unbolt the driveshaft, crossmember, disconnect all electrical connections,and then just unbolt the ...x... Number of bolts from the tranny to the block, then swap it out? I looked it up on my Haynes manual but just want to know if there is anything very challenging or some specific/unique tools I will need other than air ratchets/torque wrenches. Ohh do I also have to remove the entire shifter? Thanks guys new to this and can't standnthe squeaking noise it's making, but don't wan
t to pay someone if I can do it myself with a friend. Ohh and replacement part should I just buy it from ford or is there a better one to buy. Any way to keep it from squeaking in the future?
