Thanks. That's what I was wondering. I had imagined it would be easier for sure, but still curious about the access to the bolts.

You don't get access to the top bolts unless you tilt the trans down till it can't go anymore. Then its still very tight but totally doable.

Hey it's a learning experience. At least you are doing the work yourself.

Yeah, your car is a bit more complicated to disassemble than most Mustangs.
Good job so far!
Just keep plugging away at it.

I once had a clutch disk fall out when I pulled the pressure plate and forgot to remember to grab onto it as well. Right on the big toe. I legit almost passed out and surprised I didn't get thrown out of the shop for the amount of 4 letter words in 30 seconds.

**** this pilot bearing. Literally 20 minutes after I rented this **** it breaks because the pilot bearing won't come out. We are just obliterating the inside of it.

Do the bread technique. I've never done, but swear people do it and have success lol. Keep shoving it in and tap it until it works loose.

I would try using grease first. Soak the pilot bearing with penetrating oil overnight.

This is probably the toughest part of a clutch job... Removing a stuck pilot bearing.
The last time that I replaced a clutch, I ended up having to break the pilot into pieces with a small chisel to remove it.

Just cut it off with a cut off wheel until it gets close to the input shaft. You can then switch to a small grinder and get it till its paper thin. If your careful you can do this without damaging anything but that old bearing

That has crossed my mind. Basically even with the puller we have just been obliterating the inside of the bearing. Eventually it'll just be nothing left.

Yes. If you can get it cut through it's entire length, you should be able to pry it up, and that will decrease the diameter of the bearing, and it will come right out.

Are you using something that fills most of the pilot bearing hole? I've heard people use a ratchet extension if they don't have a punch big enough in diameter.

It's probably not hungry.

Might want to try grease instead of bread, you can do it the same way as the bread. Grease will flow a bit better than bread will and is much harder to compact

I don't have any grease. And at this point I honestly don't want to buy even more stuff unless I know it'll work 100% because that puller sucked *** and I'm out of money on that.

Well if you bought that from Autozone they come with lifetime warranty, even if you rented it so you should be able to take it back no problem. And you don't have to buy a tool or anything just a tube a grease or any grease really I'm sure Vaseline would work also and just pack it in and then hammer in your extension like you did with the bread. I've used the grease method on a buddy's truck and it came out real easy.
