Re: Pulling the clutch

Removing the handle is easy. There are four screws holding down the boot the floor. Slide the boot up and there are two bolts holding the handle on. To remove the whole shifter unbolt the 8 bolts holding it to the tranny and the whole piece comes out, in one. Its not to bad. Be carefull not to drop the spring and little lever in the tranny when you pull the whole shifter out.

Re: Pulling the clutch

You need an alignment tools for the new clutch. Centers the clutch on the flywheel.

Re: Pulling the clutch

Do I get to the rubber boot bolts by pulling up the boot and getting at them that way?

Re: Pulling the clutch

Yes, boot comes up and remove the two shifter bolts. Then if you want, take the 4 shifter allen head bolts out. Make sure you don't drop anything down in there, stuff a clean rag in the trans hole. It's handy to have plate that bolts to the transmission and a secure mount to your floor jack.

Re: Pulling the clutch

The kit came with an alignment tool. I have a trans jack that will go under while the truck is on the lift here at the shop. We do Euro cars mainly here. Always took to dealer before. Gotta do this for less $$ at the moment.
I will pull the rubber boot up and take thye shifter handle out and then I guess drop out from below.

Re: Pulling the clutch

It's best to remove the eight bolts and remove the shift tower. If you leave the shift tower on, the stub of the shift lever will give you clearance issues when you pull the tranny and put it back in. When you try to slide the tranny back the stub of the shift lever will hit the opening in the floor of the truck.

Re: Pulling the clutch

Clutch Done! Started at 6 and finished at 9. I found out all the above. Shifter piece I took out after lowered tranny a bit but should have done with handle in truck. Thanks to all of you for responses and help/suggestions.

It is absolutely awesome. truck has never sounded this way before. Quiet minus the dual mass. I have had 3 and that was it- the last time. I can hear the engine and trans when working them, ie: loading up gears in 4th coming to a stop or flooring it and hearing air intake. Never knew that dual mass could be so noisy except when left running when fueling and having everyone say that there is something loose on the truck.

Turns out my throwout bearing was the root cause of problem and it totally grenaded yesterday. Sevel fingers on pressure plate broke off and wedged into outer part of plate and into trans case bottom. Disc was actually almost in perfect condition and dual mass face was great.
