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 that...so 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
