How difficult is replacing a clutch?

Asked by Hobbes510 (56points) April 15th, 2008 from iPhone

on a scale of 1 to 10… How hard would you say replacing a clutch on a 4×4 is? Besides the transmission, I’ve got a differential I’ll need to drop to get in there… Wondering if its worth it to just pay someone to do it. :/

depends on if you’ve done this before. i’d venture to say you haven’t since you’re asking how hard it would be. I’ve replaced a clutch as well as rebuilt an engine before and it wasn’t too bad.. But I also had some help from some people who knew how to fix any mistakes or answer questions i had as I went along. I’d say to get someone else to do it, unless you have a good mechanic friend who knows exactly what to do. if so, then see if they could help you or guide you along the process.

ya… I’m leaning towards having someone else do it as well. ;) I assisted in replacing my buddy’s clutch on his 68’ fastback and it seemed pretty strait forward… But I’ve NO expirence working around the transfer case of a Jeep so… :/ guess I’ll kiss $600 goodbye and get the dealership to go at it.

If you have to ask pay someone. It is hard I helped a mechanic do one and I could not repeat the process.

It is quite difficult on a fwd (front wheel drive) vehicle, as opposed to a rwd one…
