thank u very much i havent done much work on fwd espesially manual
i see the wire connections and the crossmember is most def in the way lol the speedometer drive gear must be the part comin off the trans. toward the back.
do i take the half shafts out or leave them in and if i take them out
do u recomend any techniques for removing the cv axles so not to damage them without an axel puller?or do i have to replace them? they look like they are in good shape can still see the stickers on them without any wiping i just got the car so i dont know exactly
i bought a whole new clutch assembly with the flywheel i have the alignment tool also and i have a good idea of what to do when i get there just need to get there first lol i like to be sure of myself b4 i tear things apart normally my dad could awnser most of my questions but well stuff happens!!
thank u very much for the info
