Clutch help please

I have a '90 GST that hasn't been running for a while. My girlfriend owned it first and at the time whenever she switched gears it would make a horrible clank whenever the clutch was let out. It didn't slip at all, so I am possitive that it isn't the clutch plate. Other than that I don't really know. The car was sold to a friend and I then bought it back. It stopped moving while the friend owned it. I was wondering what exactly was it causing the problem and needed to be replaced. Of course it has something to do with the clutch, but the problem is is that i haven't swapped a clutch yet. Can anyone tell me step by step how to get the job done and what tools basically are required? Thanks in advance for any help.

Re: Clutch help please i have had alot of help from here, (stupid haynes manuals suck btw)

although in the first clutch swap/install in the drivetrain section they mention a shortcut by pulling the cv joints (front axles) out of the tanny and bending them up till they are along side the struts. Both of my boots failed within 2 months of doing i wouldnt.

The job is doable, but make sure you have a complete list of all parts/tools/socket sizes/fluids etc you need, before starting into it. My first time on my awd with very little experience took me a couple of days . Gl

Re: Clutch help please

You won't know exactly what it is until you pull it apart.
