My friend installed the clutch and flywheel himself...it was his first time so he took his time. I think it took him around 5 days...working a few hours a day.

I would definitely recommend having a lift for this one. No driveway/garage job with jackstand here.

You need a couple of specific tools.

- A very long 1/2" or 3/8" extension, roughly 3 feet.
- Swivel head torx bits. E12 and E14, IIRC.

Otherwise the usual air tools are required.

If you decide to do it yourself .... two tips:

1) There's a 10mm bolt that goes *into* the bell housing on the face that holds the shield in place. You won't be able to pull the tranny off the engine with it still on.

2) When you re-insert the slave cylinder, make sure it is up against the clutch fork, otherwise you'll shoot the piston into the bell housing and have to do it all over again. And bleed the clutch as well. Not fun ..... trust me.
