I do believe you have to either remove it, or disconnect it from the transmission.

Not an easy job without the right tools

To have played and laughed with enthusiasm
and sung with exultation
To know even one life has breathed easier
This is to have succeeded.

one of the motor mount bolts will have to be removed. once again if you dont have a lift its going to be a bitch and a half.

lift front end of car up.
unbolt one side of motor mount.
unbolt tranny and slide clutch out.
replace with other clutch and reverse the process.

Sounds easy but laying down on your back and doing the job sucks donkey balls. took me and my pops the whole afternoon and hes been a mechanic for 40 years. it just slows you down when you dont got the right lift and everything is being done on your back.

if you want to take it to a shop i suggest not to go to toyota. there are other shops out there independantly owned who will charge less and do the same work.

Hope you're using a lift.

It is a very difficult install to accomplish, but if you think you can do it, then have confidence and do it right, or risk paying even more if for some reason you mess up.

Good luck! smile
