How do I replace the clutch in my car?

What parts should be repaired/replaced when I replace the clutch?

A clutch swap is not a simplistic procedure and should only be attempted after due experience, or when you have lots of time to learn.

Note that there are two possible replacement throwout bearings for DSMs. One is all-metal, one is lined with plastic. Many DSMers recommend using the plastic lined one. This is because the throwout bearing rides on an aluminum shaft, and the metal bearing can score this shaft over time.

Along with the clutch, the following items should be considered for replacement. Note that not all parts need be replaced each clutch swap; most can be retained unless you are having problems with poor clutch disengagement or poor pedal feel.

  • Clutch master and slave cylinders.
  • Clutch pedal rod - especially if the clutch pedal can be pulled up with your foot.
  • Clutch pedal line.
  • Clutch release fork.
  • Clutch pivot ball.
  • Flywheel.

The master and slave cylinders will generally show signs of leaking if they require replacement. The pedal line will probably not, but won't help much beyond possibly improving the pedal feel. The release fork and pivot ball may not show any significant signs of wear, but might be worn nevertheless. The flywheel need only be replaced if you desire a lighter version, or if the present flywheel is damaged beyond the capacity of resurfacing to repair.
