Toyota like Porsche

I am currently changing the clutch in a 2000 Toyota Corolla. I am surprised at the similarity between the job I did in my 924S and this one. They both follow the same 3 step instructions.

Step 1: Disassemble car
Step 2: Install clutch
Step 3: Reassemble car

For only three steps this job is turning out to be a PITA, just like the Porsche.

Carolla is a front wheel drive car...there is NO similarity between them and there is NO easy way to do it. Last time I changed a Celica clutch, we found it to be the easiest thing in the world to just unplug all the wiring and pull the engine/tranny and do it.

On just about any F/R car, I can change a clutch in about 5 hours if I devote my time to it. Never tried a tranny like the 944's, though...it's really an experience I'm looking forward to.

I wish you the best of luck. I've yet to do the clutch on my 924... they're similar but not exactly the same. The most troublesome part i believe is when you're disconnecting everything... Exhaust, brake lines, half-shafts/CV joints from stub axles... to loosen the transmission from the body and move everything back far enough to get the clutch assembly out. Without a lift, it's hell.

I don't have a lift... just ramps and a few bottle/floor jacks. What equipment will you have at your disposal?

From what I gather, the tranny on the 944/24/68 is a rear mounted transaxle (no, I've never actually bothered to crawl under and look yet)...it's not the same as what most F/R vehicles have...more like a lawnmower transaxle. The part I think will be the hardest is disconnecting the axles and lining them up again propperly. Not sure what stabbing it is going to be like...

All then rest seems like it's just turning bolts.

I personally have a shop to use, with a lift, but I don't think I'm going to. I'll probably do it at home with jack stands (I've made my own to get some real lift, 20" stands made of 4" drill-stem...I sell them).
